Hey everyone! i guess all the hardwork and lack of surfing this site during work the past three years has paid off! i was recently rewarded for all my hard work by being contacted by a recruiter from the leading IT firm here in Jacksonville, interviewed by panel and picked to be the manager of the largest support team at a large transportation provider.

anyway i'm beyond excited, this is a BIG move for me and i'll suddenly be in charge of about a dozen staff members.

so, any advice? words of wisdom? do's/don'ts? I know that i'll need to avoid surfing the web even more at work (darn), i'll have to curse less (crap) and dress better (d'oh). I'm also considering if i should change out the Stealie i have plastered on my notebook to project a more professional image....

thoughts? comments? complaints?

Congratulations Linnie, and good luck in the new position. No advice here since you obviously already know what you are doing!

Congratulations. Linnie.

The best cream rises to the top.


You will be great in this new job.

When I took on my first MIS management assignment, I tried to treat my employees the way
the Bosses that I like had treated me. I had some good role models.

Be honest and fair with them and they will work hard for you.

of course if you're just managing geeks, just make sure they have plenty of Jolt Cola and Moon Pies.

Congrats Linnie, I know how satisfied and proud you must be feeling right now.

If this is your first management gig, I'd only offer a few things. In the long run, treating people fairly and equitably is probably the most important thing you can do. Remember how you'd like to be treated and act accordingly.

A manager's goal should be trying to improve the conditions so that their staff can succeed and reach their goals. You will ultimately be judged on how well the group succeeds, not your individual performance.

Don't be afraid of disciplinary processes. If someone really isn't cutting it, and isn't corrected, their poor performance without consequence is like a cancer for your good people. Hard as it is to consider, terminating someone who's not doing the job is sometimes necessary. Trust me; if done correctly, your staff will respect you and your life will greatly improve when you hire someone who can perform.

Most of all; have fun! It isn't worth doing unless you enjoy it!

Congratulations.

My advice. Never ask a subordinate to get you coffee, tea or any liquid refreshment that is not in a sealed container. Never ask a subordinate to get you any type of food item that is not in a sealed container. Even if you think they really like or respect you.

You are now the Boss and unfortunately that changes everything.

You do not want to find out why.
