This question already has an answer here:
One of the manager from a different team approached my manager to find out if there is a good resource in my team for an open position. Manager said, I have been suggested as I deserve the most.
I was invited for lunch by that manager, had some discussions about the role and later given verbal offer, which I accepted happily. It all looked promising until my senior manager came into the picture.
Ever since my manager had discussed this with my senior manager, my manager has started saying things like "you are too valuable for my team", "I am worried about the current project" and "team would be weakened as another employee has decided to move out end of next month".
I have good connections with members of other team also and they whispered about my senior manager being a roadblock. Amid all these events, I am losing my concentration in current project, getting demoralized and afraid that other team might just forget about me.
How should I tackle this and grab that offer ?
