The abruptness of leadership transitions can be very hard for people to process. When new leaders are thrown into the deep end with little or no training, it can lead them to feel inadequate and overwhelmed.

Many professionals find that leading a team is completely different from what they’re used to doing – even if they were very successful in their old role.
