Congrats – You’ve been promoted!  Oftentimes, when you accept a new role at your current company, you will find yourself caught between your old duties and your new duties.  As in any new role, there is likely a defined transition period - typically between 2-3 weeks.  But what happens when your old team comes to you on day 2 of your new role and asks you to take care of something for them?  It’s important to understand when and how to say no to your old team.

One description of a typical office’s youngest employees might be something like this: They’re Facebook junkies bent on getting the next promotion; they’d rather text than talk; they openly tweet at meetings; they tend to have "me first" mentalities and self-entitled natures.
