A promotion that changes your position from colleague to supervisor will change the working dynamic with your colleagues. Here are some tips to help you manage that transition successfully.
Take appropriate management classes to assist you with your training for the new responsibilities. You may not have extensive experience with some of your new responsibilities such as budget, human resources, supervision, finances, purchasing, or risk management, to name a few.
- Brush up on all the administrative functions is very important–especially if your previous position was very technical and did not include many administrative responsibilities.
- Remember what you liked about your good supervisors and try to incorporate their positive traits into your management style.
