I recently transitioned to a new role in my organization.
It’s a great opportunity and I’m excited about it for a number of reasons. Unfortunately, managing the transition has been a bit challenging.
My now-former boss and I have not had the greatest relationship, and they have been particularly difficult during the transition. On the one hand, they have cancelled many of the meetings that would have been used to discuss transition work or had meetings with my backfill without me. However, when something doesn’t go right, they are quick to publicly say (or send an email - to create a record?) that they thought that I was still handling that item.
I am trying not to take this personally - I think they are upset that they will not be getting full control over some of the projects that I was working on - but I’m concerned about the pattern that I’m seeing. Any advice? Either on managing the person or the transition?
