No offense but why does the SM need to decide who does what? The SM decided that you’re the MGR. the SM should now focus on the general account. You should be helping the SM out by building the structure of the team, assigning roles and responsibilities, etc...
Since they’ve been there longer take some time to see what is working, what isn’t, who does what, etc... then step in, provide guidance and direction, and make shit happen.

You’re the manager: why are they being allowed any say in what you do? If they’ve been on the project for a bit maybe take a little time to observe before making any changes but ultimately you need to do your job.

Yeah theyve been here longer than i have and have more leverage- but very political and always trying to keep me at arms distance- sm isnt helping with clear directions on who owns what

You are the manager. What’s the question?

Something I’m struggling with as it relates to the rise of the “Karens”. I get it, Karens suck and are very real but why is it that women always have to deal with this kind of stereotype?

But somehow it feels like yet another divide between women. Just wish we could make it less about gender and more about privilege.
