You’re a manager now. Congratulations.
Your first five years as a manager are going to be full of lessons galore. Lesson #1 begins the moment someone asks you a question and you realize they’re asking you not because you actually know the answer, but because the term manager is in your title and they’ll believe any reasonable answer. Some folks call that power, I call it responsibility.
