I have just been promoted so that I am managing a different new team directly and I have also promoted someone in my old team so that I am managing them and they are managing the team. So for the first time I am managing another manager.
I'm a long time listener, but would appreciate some guidance and podcast suggestions on how to handle this new situation please.
Should we have joint O3s to start with his new (and my old) directs, or just maybe the first one to handover? I was planning to have a joint team meeting to start with, but after that should I let him have the team meetings on his own, or join them periodically? I already conduct weekly O3s and team meetings, so I will set this up with my new team and also continue the O3s with the new manager of my old team.
I am wary of losing touch with the day to day stuff of the old team, but maybe that's just what I need to do so that I have the time to deal with my new team of directs.
Any advice appreciated, especially from those who've been through this situation (or seen it handled badly by others!)
p.s. a huge thanks to everyone at Manager tools and on the forums, I know I wouldn't have received the promotion without all of the advice over the years!
