There are things that can help you succeed as a new manager. Those things include: planning, organization, motivation, facilitation, building your workforce, managing stress, and conflict management.
One study of a major financial company’s middle-management found that nearly half of their managers and supervisors took the job for an increase in pay and better benefits; less than a quarter of them actively wished to be leaders. People become managers for a myriad of reasons, and many of them aren’t fully prepared for the job when they take it. Making the transition from “employee” to “manager” can be an intimidating process. You’ll likely be transitioning from having your success measured on how well you complete your own individual tasks to being judged on the basis of how well your team as a whole meets its objectives. Whether you sought out the job due to an interest in leading others or you were seeking career advancement, there are plenty of reasons to be anxious and excited about your new position. By studying the essentials of the management process, you will be able to approach your new job with the tools you need to overcome the challenges you’re about to face.
