The Challenges

New ​Responsibility

You will own things that were never yours.

Your success is now the success of your team.

What

goes without saying

must

be said.

Meetings

You will talk.

You will talk a lot.

Multitasking

Many things will happen

at the same time

all the time.

Imposter Syndrome

What are you doing here?

How long until someone figures out that you should not be there?

The Good Things
