For someone who has been promoted over his peers, ground rules are essential- "Promotion doesn't mean the end of friendship but it does change it," according to Keating- If a peer has been promoted, rather than grouse and give in to envy, it is important to step back and look at the new manager; take a hard look at why the peer was promoted and what skill or characteristic made you a less appealing fit for the position -Hakim 2017--
