Now You Work for Everyone
Welcome to management! Yes, at some point in our careers many of us will be recognized for some combination of talent, hard work, achievements, saying the right thing (or the wrong thing at the right time), potential and luck (sorry, but luck is always a part of it too. You’re not that special).
Colleagues you were working side-by-side with yesterday and other managers who you will not be seeing every morning at the managers meeting will both be expecting you to take charge and whip your team into the high-performing model of efficiency and effectiveness you were to get that promotion!
Well, it’s not really like that…
In reality, that team of 30 people you were part of that now reports to you? You are actually working for them now.
That’s right. YOU WORK FOR THEM.
