Stand on my own
I'm in a new role where the previous employee who held this role is still involved in non-work conversations, including occasionally giving advice to the CEO. (This comes more in the form of questions from the CEO that the former employee answers...) This is a small business (very small) and I don't have all the history on things and people, but I'm trying to learn and grow. Things that seem straightforward (to me) aren't quite so, as it seems there's a back story to any project or question or business connection. I'm glad the previous employee is still highly regarded on the team, but I'd also love the clean break to stand on my own. Has anyone ever been in a situation like this? How did you handle it?
