I started this blog with the support of my then director after a few years of doing my own reading, research and thinking on my own because I didn’t feel especially well supported when I became a new manager.
The supports are better now – more consistently meted out and are comprised of a combo of technical knowledge (budget and HR) and competency driven supports.
This article is a good addition to the thinking on how to support new managers and includes the advice to pair new managers up with a mentor and have them attend stakeholder meetings.
