Any IBD or general advice on moving from associate to VP from a personality point of view? Am quite outgoing and always tried to be a “culture-carrier” but now I have to garner respect from the juniors and they look at me like I’m going to ruin their lives. Need to find the line between being taken seriously and remaining approachable.

It will take some time for you to find your own management style that works. I’m outgoing and friendly to (most) everyone in the office so I’m pretty approachable and have an open door policy. But when the serious has to come out and I have to drop the hammer, I do it without losing my cool. Obviously we all lose our cool sometime and when that happens, I’ll go back to the person the next day and talk it out. It will take time for your team to get used to the way you work, and that’s ok.

Lead by example. Be a role model. Stay hands on. Give frequent feedback - both good and bad. Listen as much as you speak. Think back to the great role models you had when you were more junior and try to take the best attributes from them.

Hey ladies, I recently had my performance review which went very well. My manager wants to make me a manager now but her boss wants to wait and have my promotion attached to something like me receiving a cert. Although I am studying for two certs, why does my promotion need to be attached to an achievement when she clearly sees that my work performance has put me at that level? No one else on the company has had to wait for an outside achievement to be promoted. I truly believe they don’t..
