Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about being blackballed:
Approximately 6 mos ago, I was moved into an interim mgmt position to be transitioned to a permanent mgmt position. Before agreeing to the interim position, I confirmed w/the director that I would be maintaining ‘status quo’ until the new mgr for this team of employees (who were my peers) was onboarded (approx. 6 wks). 3 days into the interim position (which I was expected to do in addition to my former job), the director came to me and asked that I go to my team and let them know their productivity standards were being increased (a deviation from the status quo we had agreed on).
