In addition, there's "no one else in the same role who you can turn to when you're stuck, or confused or frustrated – and that can sometimes leave you feeling lonely," says Emma Brudner, a manager. "As a manager, you have to intentionally seek out fellow leaders and actively build a support network (and I guarantee that you will need it)."
Jennifer Winter, who also served as a manager, says that her experience made her a better worker and a better person, but the job has lots of demands. "You’ll have to make tough decisions, and you’ll feel pulled in a thousand different directions, unable to pick just one and go for it," she says. "In short, managing is tough, confusing, frustrating, and tiring."
To deal with such issues and be a better manager, you need to learn to delegate, communicate effectively, take a personal interest in each worker, and create a positive work environment.
