A few months ago my team was split. Half the team stayed with the old manager, with a new team manager being designated to my half.
Things went fine, and last week in a team meeting with the boss' boss asked for feedback from each team member (including the new manager, that spoke last).
I went first, and praised the new workflows implemented, and how the new boss changed dynamics and those effects on productivity.
But in (introspect) retrospect, it might've sounded like I was criticizing the old boss; They were not mentioned in my feedback though.
Next time it happens, how should I present my positive evaluation of the new boss so it does not allow it to be interpreted like criticism of the old one?
