Hi Ladies! I’m transitioning to a manager of a team I’ve been leading. There’s been a lot of turnover with the team and I feel like I’m having a hard time getting the team to see me more as an authoritative figure. For example, when I ask for volunteers on a simple task, no one replies. Should I just resort to assigning rather than asking? Also are there leadership books you suggest that I could read up on? Thank you!

WL at Kellogg but $$$ at Booth. Just for my own self justification - are the two schools that different in culture and students profile? When I applied, I know there are differences but didn’t think it would be that much. I even think I have more chance at Kellogg than Booth. I know I’m lucky (only apply 2 for R1) and I’m grateful for Booth with scholarship. Congrats to all my Kellogg fellows today!
