My boss wants to transfer two of my peers to be my directs in about 6 months. I am currently an individual contributor, although I'm the technical lead on this upcoming 3 person project (myself plus these 2 peers). They will not know that I will be their manager for a while. How do I adjust my behavior right now to make the future transition go as smoothly as possible?
Some of my ideas include:
1. Cut down on comments about management incompetence :)
2. Spend more time training and helping.
Any MT resources I missed that already address this topic?
