I was headhunted for a Director of Product Mgmt role (Was a PM earlier). I now feel like my scope is huge.. accountable for almost a $25mn budget generating over 1bn revenue. Prior to this, I’ve handled only small (less than 500k) budget.
Imposter syndrome at its peak. What do I do!!??
It’s been a couple months since i joined, I still feel super new and don’t follow things at time.

Everyone questions their ability at some point. But you are capable of fulfilling the tasks set before you, otherwise you wouldn't have gotten the role. You can do ittt

WLB advice needed, fishes.

With schools back to in person learning my job is understandably tightening up expectations again, even though we are still working from home. My kids don't understand/ like it AT ALL and when they get home from school they just want daddy and feel like I'm ignoring them. What do I do??
