SM and D 🐠: when you interview a candidate with 9+ yrs of experience for a technical/leadership role - do you expect them to know the definitions of “objects” that they learnt as basics a decade back? or do you give them scenario based questions that solves clients’ problems? Genuinely curious.

I’ve been working on an internal sales team where the SM in charge was unorganized, a bad communicator, and as a bonus, they liked to blatantly lie in sales calls. They took a leave earlier this year, and while they were gone we found an amazing manager that’s up for promotion to take over. Now the SM is back, and they’re back to their old ways/operating in a silo. We’re hoping to get the SM to step aside to an advisory role, but not the overall lead. How should we approach the conversation?

As a manager in Big 4 I reported to a partner all the while I was at the firm, so acted as a de-facto director often with managed and sales revenue toy name.
