What I’ve learned as a leadership coach to hundreds of new managers is that there is one thing that causes new managers to fail more than any other reason. You might be great at achieving results and getting stuff done, but the problem is not a skill issue. Instead, the problem is created by how you think.To succeed as a first-time manager, there are 4 critical shifts you have to make in your thought process. First-time managers who embrace these shifts quickly and change their behaviors are those who succeed and become leaders people love to work for.
