When we get promoted to manager, we imagine that the new authority will free us to accomplish all the changes we have been hoping to see in the organization. But we quickly realize that being a manager requires building trust, earning credibility, and empowering new teams into action  Additionally, those who were once close friends and peers are now under our authority as a manager, requiring careful navigation to maintain those relationships in a healthy way.
