I'm the line manager and lead developer of a small team of 4 people. I am new to the role and currently ramping up my knowledge of the domain and internal technical architecture.
I'm very laid back in my management style. As long as we're delivering new features and the code is to what I consider to be a professional standard then I just let people get on.
One team member is trying to take over management of the team. I have nothing against them personally, they're very smart, they've been very helpful to me and other colleagues and I've given then good performance reviews. However they're young, mid 20s, and seem to have a very black and white view of things and very fixed ideas of how things should be done.
I've noticed them trying to take over the management of the team. Trying to take charge of delegation, trying to run meetings and standups and just generally over stepping what I consider to be boundary of their role in order to implement a team dynamic that they feel is appropriate.
I don't want to crush anyone's sprit or good intentions however I don't want this to continue. We have bi weekly one to one meetings where I would like to make it clear this should stop.
What is the best way to approach this ?
