Moving into management

Becoming a manager for the first time is daunting! You will be managing your own workload, as well as helping someone or a group of individuals prioritise their own tasks, and coaching them on their own development and growth. The first thing I used to tell new managers or newly promoted people into managerial positions within teams that I managed is the importance of taking that part of the role seriously. So many people see it as an add-on to the day job - a chore that needs to happen that’s not central to the core role they were brought on to do.

However, it’s actually one of the most important parts of the job, and can bring great personal pleasure and satisfaction when done well. How you show up for your team is important, and how you show up at work, especially when you have a team, is important. People seek strong role models they can aspire to, and you being seen to do your job well by your team can have a huge impact on their own careers.
