Have you ever heard anyone say management is easy? I have been a manager for 10 years now, and I can attest to the immense challenges that come with the job. Most managers do not have any real management training and are frequently asked to lead a team because of their display of confidence in knowledge, ability to delegate and their interactive communication skills. But sometimes using those skills as an individual employee don’t translate to using them as a manager.
