Half our team is moving to another team. I was one of 3 manager types....now the other two are gone.
I may be the boss now?

Go watch office space so you know how to act like the boss.

I just need you to move your desk over to the basement ok? LOL Well, if you are indeed the new boss, congrats, you'll be great!

Just the title of your thread alone is enough to tell me you will do well. I believe that a better job is done by those who view leadership as a burden than a privilege.

You should make everyone prepare a resume, without telling them.

Then make them bring the resumes to your office, one at a time. Make them stand in front of your desk while you look over the resume, then after a minute roll a 20 sided die, glare at the result and say "plus ten experience, go have lunch."

Why the laughing? I am serious! I know that is unusual, but it does happen from time to time.

A boss with a black belt. Love it! (when it's not my boss )

Just kidding. You go with your bad bossy self!
