Absolutely- your goal is for them to excel. If they surpass you in some areas you have done a good job! Also, transparency is key. Your people will love you for it

Best way to do this is have conversations with leaders whose style you admire. Talk to them about their values, how they inspire their teams, and how they got to where they are now. You’ll learn much more that way than from a book

Some tips I can think of- first and foremost, be a nice person. Nobody likes to work for an asshole. Reputations spread fast. Don't take out client frustrations on juniors. It's never helpful. Check the work of your team and gently point out errors the first couple of times. If it continues, then have a one on one with the folks who aren't getting it. Don't expect out of others what you would not expect out of yourself. Don't do to others what you would hate done to yourself. Be fair, be polite but be firm. And, never forget your own days of struggling for promotion.. Someone else will be doing that same thing in your team(s) down the road so be mindful of that.

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!
