I just started a new job at a major Fortune 100 company. It's a terrific role and a great opportunity. I'm very excited.
For the first time, I will be managing a team made up of at least four (possibly five) direct reports. I'm in my late-30's (downward slope toward 40) and all are at least 10 years younger than me. Previously, I've managed handfuls of interns and small teams of one or two, but this is the first time I'm responsible for growing a team, nurturing them, and helping them walk a career path.
