What sector? Is your analyst well regarded + do you have a lot of contact with buyside clients?

What were you doing on the buy side? Not sure how easy it’d be to move from a public markets facing role to a private markets one

Well regarded analyst... previous role was in high yield credit

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!
