Got pushed into the manager role after a few of my superiors quit and I’m really struggling to fit into a leadership role. Any tips to help me adapt/grow into this position?

You've got this, OP! I think making yourself approachable and available to your staff will make all the difference.

A leadership position definitely comes with new challenges, but it gets easier over time. Be confident in yourself and your decisions, while also keeping your ear to the ground and listening to those around you. It's a delicate balance but once you master it, it will carry you far.

The role isn't meant for anyone and if it's not your cup of tea then there's no shame in trying to find a way to transition out of it. I'm only saying this because it sounds like you sort of got pressured into taking on the role, but I'm happy to be corrected if that's not the case

One of the main attributes of an effective manger to understand is that your role is to remove obstacles. You are there to make the jobs of those that report to you easier. By doing this, you will gain their trust and show your support of them.

I really really wanna quit my job. Every second of every day. And I just needed somewhere to say it bc let’s be real, I can’t quit bc debt can’t be paid off with Monopoly money and I don’t even know if there’s another firm where I’d feel happier. I think I just hate being a lawyer. I’m not myself anymore and I feel like I have no life because I can never truly unplug or turn off work mode. Shout out to those feelin the same struggle right now. ❤️

I’m nervous that it’s higher than the band for this role and they may rescind the offer for someone who costs less. I also thought up about following up to tell them I turned down company B, so I’ll move forward w/ the original comp.
