8 Tips to Transition from Coworker to Manager

Becoming a manager demands a higher level of professionalism at work, but that does not mean you have to throw away your humanity. Lisa Quast writes for Forbes about eight ways to make the transition the right way. First, since you are now the one assigning work and measuring productivity, recognize that your relationships with coworkers is on a different level now. Avoid all gossip and venting, and treat all employees with respect. Do not allow prior work experiences to color your opinions of people one way or another. Discuss your expectations with employees one-by-one, and be sure that they know what to expect of you as well.  Work together to make the best plan for success, and if it might help, see your HR representative for any additional available training and support.
