The 100 to 200 journey
100-level leaders on their way to 200-level are outstanding individual contributors with solid technical knowledge and a desire to improve continuously. People who consistently demonstrate excellence in their body of work are often promoted to manager. As a new manager, the expectation is that you will manage the work of several people, consistently delivering on time and within budget, thereby freeing up your manager to think and act at a higher conceptual level.
Common pinch point: New managers will resist the vulnerability of delegating while simultaneously taking on more and more in an effort to demonstrate their potential to the organization.
