Newly minted managers often struggle to cope with their sudden position and so feel unprepared for the challenges. Just like our genetic cousins, the baboons who keep looking up to the clans’ alpha-males, humans too have a habit of trying to please their seniors rather than doing their jobs well. The recent cases of bad publicity at Uber was blamed on faulty management, yet one needs to understand that the people in charge were simply not prepared for such challenges. This is particularly true of such fast-rising companies. Formal management training modules need to be set up accordingly. The skills which in the first place got one promoted, may not be the same ones required once the person is a manager. Demonstrating vision, supporting teamwork and recognizing others’ contributions are factors managers should be pulling in. Emotionally reining in ones is also crucial at this stage.
