Have a servant-leader approach to leading your teams and people... remember that your job is to support them so they can be successful. Your merit and potential should now be evaluated on the successes of your team (and not solely of you as an individual). The more you genuinely care about your team members, the more loyal and hard working they will be.

Also, give them enough space to create, invent and think critically.... smart folks will amaze you with what they can do! I ensure all of my team members have at least 20% of their capacity protected to (literally) do nothing else but just think. To this day, they create some of the most thoughtful and creative approaches to solving issues.

Good luck!!!

Trust your team and make them feel supported so they can give their best back.

Be confident in yourself. Don’t be afraid to ask for advice of your peers/leaders when you have new people management situations that you haven’t encountered. I’ve found the most success in taking on a collaborative management style, especially when managing teammates that are older and have a more specialized skill set than myself. I don’t pretend to know everything and my teams have received it well and supported each other more.

On feedback: give it frequently and constructively. Make sure it’s always geared towards how they can grow and improve. If it’s not constructive, there’s no point in giving the feedback.

And in general: i also agree with having a collaborative approach - figure out the strengths on your team and don’t be afraid to ask for help where you need it (just be sure to give them credit where it’s due!)

Frequent feedback! I like to schedule a sit down every couple weeks to talk feedback, goals, etc., but also believe in immediate feedback like quick comments on the way back from a meeting, etc.

Feeling a little down. Started at big law about 7 months ago. Everything was going so great, basically perfect. I was on a roll. But the last month has been full of hiccups. Nothing super major but like messing up citations, told one shareholder I was leaving early and another stopped by office looking for me and made a deal about it. Had to tell senior associate no to a couple assignments because I am at capacity. I guess I should have known perfect wouldn’t last for ever but 1/2
