Maybe I am misunderstanding what ‘coaching’ means. But I discussed with my manager before the coach was hired, and he assured me that we were not hiring a manager.
At the very least I should be able to ask this person to leave me alone? My stress level is through the roof.
I don’t want to start a conflict in the office. But at the same time, I cannot just stand for some pseudo-manager usurping power in his first weeks.
In the meantime, I’m working in another part of the office to avoid the situation brewing. But longterm, this is not a good solution. I also realize it’s immature.
I should probably talk to my manager about it. But I fear that we will not understand and then I have made the situation worse.
@mellowmymind Talk to your manager. Communication is really important.
The way I see it - you can learn from everybody. Sometimes - how to do things, other times (and as important) - how *not* to do things.
just 2 cents from a guy who inserts himself into tech discussions *all the time*.
