I have been tasked with helping in two departments. I am an associate manager for laboratory staff (though I have a very strong supervisor) I am still needed for higher level tasks in department A. I was asked to assist “right the ship” in department B due to my leadership skills. I have been working in both areas for some months now. I have helped implement some great changes in department B but seem to be at odds with the current manager in department B. This person has created an environment in department B where every task is solely dependent on him/her and I am struggling to keep it together!! Department A (with the help of my supervisor) is doing “ok” Department B is needs more attention. How do you all keep a balance when you are essentially needed in BOTH areas?
