Probably not the end of the world

You may have had the impression recently that all is not 100% at work.

Well one of things that was going well was the Agency Project Manager. I liked his laid back style, his can do attitude, his ability to work through a problem to a solution. He wasn't phased by anything. Plus he was a nice guy, which always helps.

Well he's leaving. Was it something I said? I am truly gutted. Well angry actually.

I know he's moving to a better job with more responsibility and a much better package and it's the right move for him, but it's just not fair.

I'm assured by all and sundry that his replacement is a great guy and is highly regarded by everybody, and I don't doubt that. I was just happy with where I was and I don't want to have to deal with the change. I might be gaining someone great but at the moment I can only focus on losing someone that is a real asset.

I was chatting with him this morning and biting my tongue. I wanted to say "How can you do this to me?" because it feels so personal because it's my project and he was my project manager.

I'm sure everything will be fine. I hope everything will be fine. Please let everything be fine.

I always hate it when there is a regime change at work after you have built up a good working relationship with your line manager. I am sure you will be fine..
