Moving from an individual contributor to a first-time management role requires a major leap in your career. It's a completely different role. Your new job is to create the conditions for others to succeed, not to do the work yourself. As a manager, you must develop the skills of effective delegation and motivation and avoid the trap of micromanagement.
