I handed my notice in some time ago. My boss (director of the company) has asked me not to say anything to my team and colleagues. She says she needs to protect the business as she is worried about a domino effect of people following me as I am quite influential within the business. She has tried and failed to get me to change my mind about leaving and I don't believe she knows how to replace me.
My boss is finding every excuse not to tell the team saying she is working on something and needs more time.
I only have 10 days left of my notice period and am talking with colleagues about work I know I'm never going to be involved in. Should I just go ahead and tell my team I'm leaving so I don't have to continue lying to people I respect?
