Background as to why you want to roll off??

Communicate your reasons and your desire not to burn bridges with mentors. Have you done that yet?

Have a good reason, be open and clear in your communication, and state that you're willing to work with them to find and train a replacement.

Impossible.... W/o negative consequences

We still havent heard his reason. Hopefully it's not something silly like hours and workload, or uninspired work, or bad management. Those aren't good enough to get the slap down.

My predecessor did this and basically brought me onboard early to take over his role when he would roll off. His reason was having done too many projects in this space and wanting to diversify, also it was going to be a small team and he wanted to lead big teams. He told me there was a bit of negative impact from one of the partners. He still had to stay on longer than he would've liked, but eventually he took advantage of the client wanting to downsize the team and rolled himself off. It only worked because he essentially brought on a manager replacement early (me), otherwise I don't think he could have rolled himself off.

Have you ever dealt with a colleague that believes in extremely (in my opinion) outdated or even just false claims and treats them as scientific facts? I work with several older men but one of them practices "provocative therapy" as in you just play the devil's advocate with your patient and side with the negative half of their thinking. In theory I could see this working situationally, but as a whole philosophy regardless of the patient's issue I think it's ridiculous.

Collecting data on a potential entrepreneurship idea for a marketing CRM of sorts. What I have found is that most ppl in marketing do not have a specific tool that they use in order to coordinate and connect with marketing agencies. For ex. I was working on a webinar and needed to work with a few diff agencies to draft up creative and copy assets. Everything was done via email/docs. Would have been nice to have a CRM to organize and bring transparency to coordinate the project. How about you?

For those of you that are freelancers - do you run into this issue constantly of people asking for holds without telling you what the project is? I don’t even know how to approach this because if I respond back to ask for details and THEN say ‘it’s a 2nd hold’ it’s pretty obvious I’m not interested enough to give a 1st hold. But I’m also never going to give anyone a 1st without details - don’t producers understand this when reaching out? I really don’t get it.
