There have been a number of decisions made at my software company that I don't agree with. Technical jobs being moved offshore, irresponsible people given lots of responsibility, etc. Several people I enjoyed working with won't be around moving forward. we're also working with a skeleton crew and couldn't afford to lose these people.
However, one big positive came in the Pandora's Box. A very capable fellow project manager has been promoted to head of our department, and I would like to support him in every way possible because I know he understands our roles and can at least try to help support us in the midst of all this chaos. He's considered young and unproven and is friends with all of us, and I know he will feel pressure to change those interactions. This is fine, but I would really like tips to help support him and make him look good, so he can continue and help us thrive.
