When your boss moves up and out, should you go along with him?

It all depends. Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

  • Is it a true partnership? You should respect each other and share values, ethics and integrity. You both should feel strongly that the other person’s ideas matter. Moving just to stay in your comfort zone could be risky.
  • Will you be able to grow?
  • Can your partnership withstand the new culture? You’ll be working for a new organization, even if you are with the same boss.
