I work at my company since three years and have been promoted to manager of the team I started in. I have brought a lot of innovation and efficiency to the team and always received top performance reviews and was consistently told I was the top performer in the department.
I truly enjoy my team... but recently a director and my manager brought me into a meeting and told me that I have to start grooming my successor in order for me to manage another, newer, team within weeks time. Although it is interesting, it is one of the most troubled teams in the company, poor in talent and motivation.
I personally feel that despite having received only positive performance reviews, I still have many improvements and projects for my current team... so I am confused about this re-assignment. And wondering whether it might be a sign that they don't want me in my current team anymore because of some reason.
How can I know for sure whether there are no hidden motivation behind their move?
