Ignore self doubt when it creeps in. Don’t assume seniority means you know everything, and don’t let your staff look “up” for answers. Ask lots of questions and really listen. Empower teams to solve problems and reward critical thinking. Look for ways to positively connect with your new peers and cultivate connection points with other groups and your team(s).

I was so focused on business results and was "all business all the time". I didn't take the time to build trusted relationships by being more personal and vulnerable and creating time and space for non work dialogue. I was seen as a hard ass even though I'm a total marshmallow inside but never let it be shown. It required a significant shift and focus on it until it became more natural and now I've developed a very strong followership as a result.

I’m at the point that I start trembling every time I get an email alert. It’s the little things piling up that is getting to me. The to do list full of, “send emails to X about Y,” “follow-up re this,” “revise the 100 small things the baby lawyer drafted.” Tasks that might take 15 minutes to an hour individually, but all together it’s a lot. I’m the bottle neck. I’m the one who needs to move these things along. But there’s always something bigger and more urgent. Nothing’s ever FINISHED.
