My biggest challenge today is that I was promoted from an individual contributor to a manager and am now managing 8 of my former peers and am also pulling my team in a entirely new direction. Let me also say that one of my now directs interviewed for this position that I now hold. I have been in the role 4 months now. Some of my directs who use to be my peers are being rather difficult and struggling with seeing me as their manager. I have received a lot of push back and questioning related to my vision and direction for the team.
I listened to the Career Tools podcast "I am a former peer" from the perspective of the peer however, I am looking for advice and recommendations for the manager not the direct. Are there any podcasts or resources you could direct me to from the manager's perspective? Thank you in advance for your help!!
