Any tips on making a successful transition to manager when coming straight from industry? Any best practices or lessons learned, suggestions for books to read, skills to brush up on?? I’m starting with Accenture next month as a manager after only industry experience. Feeling apprehensive about hitting the ground running as a new manager + new consultant, and want to do as much as possible in the meantime to prepare.

I have so much mom guilt sending my baby to daycare. She’s 6 months old. The transition has been harder on me than her (she seems fine and happy, just isn’t sleeping well there yet) but I wonder if I should try and find a different solution. Part time nanny, part time daycare? We can’t afford a nanny full time. If I’m WFH and we have a nanny part time is it realistic that I’d see her during the day or am I kidding myself?
