Topic: Management & Leadership
Very often, an employee is promoted to a managerial position on the basis of his or her recognized expertise. When a new manager takes over, he/she face real changes in the situation as well.
But managerial expertise is different. Managers have to learn to delegate. They also have to learn to motivate coworkers. This is one of the main lessons any new manager has to learn.
