Who are you?
I have a theory about who you are…
I’m assuming that you are where I once was, and you’re looking for a better way to move forward because what you are doing right now just isn’t working.
Put simply: you need help, guidance, a bit of direction. I get it, I’ve been there too.
You’re in some form of a managerial role, and that means you have a team that reports directly to you, or you manage something specific like a project or product, or possibly a combination of the two.
You are responsible for something bigger than yourself. People depend on you. You have an impact on the business, on customers, on employees — on people and their livelihood, their lives.
Faced with new challenges, new responsibilities, a new normalized level of stress-inducing expectations, how do we react?
We fall back on what works — and what worked for you in your previous role was doing a stellar job, as an individual contributor — and assisting those around you when you can, as much as you can.
What’s the problem? There are only so many hours in the day.
