DHIT®: Today a colleague - tomorrow an executive: Questions & Answers

Why is the change from colleague to manager so difficult for many?

Some prospective managers think they can't make any mistakes, especially at the beginning, and slip into the role of the "perfect manager", losing touch with their employees and colleagues in the process. However, you can only play the "new manager" card in the early days.


What are the classic tips and tricks for the first 100 days?

There are quite a few. You should know them and then decide for yourself what to implement.


What do I have to bear in mind when moving from colleague to supervisor?

That is a very individual question. However, it's more important to consciously use and build on your personal strengths than just to work on your areas of development.
