My duties at work have been slightly altered somewhat by the managerial rotations. I have deftly avoided all specialty work until now. Specialty work is loved by many, but I have little love for this type of work.
I like my odd generic cases day in and day out year after year.
I remained with my supervisor which is a plus. I am now her senior officer and the one with longest tenure
in the area and with her. In reality the most senior officer is expected to mentor and provide technical expertise. The supervisor provides the policy and crunches the numbers and the lead is a buffer. The lead knows the team and provides direction. This supervisor and I rarely disagree and when we do she knows how to get me moving. It is really quite simple give a rational reason and I move accordingly. My sole difference is we take care of our own first before helping others. I was all ready mentoring three of the members of this team.
Our team focus is military cases and general work. We do have military cases and they deserve extra effort. This is something no manager needs lecture me on. I did this long before it was a priority as the right thing to do. Top management is extremely helpful when a military problem happens. I have been called in as a specialist when nasty problems occurred with this type of case a few times. A more aggressive officer with a talent for networking is sometimes needed to achieve the task.
It is a slight diversion from my current task. Remaining with the same supervisor is a plus as I expected to remain with the same crew more or less. Being a lead is not something I really wanted as I am happier just working away on my own issues.
