Friendly greetings @ChrissyWin and congratulations. I am happy for you getting the opportunity to shine. Can you rely on any past background or knowledge regarding your new role? Either way, I share happily everything I know and have learned during my own career. I also collected helpful stuff. Take a deep breath, I know it can be freaking exciting awesome to be in charge.
One very important thing I have learned. To become a good leader, one has to learn leading oneself to lead others. And I can tell you that leading ourselves remains the biggest challenge we face in life. That’s said regardless someones natural being. With knowledge and power always comes responsibility too.
I’ve seen people having misconceptions about leadership and management. They are very close and go often hand in hand. Management is best describe as a tool set that influences efficiency, to say performance. Leadership on the other hand is best described as a set of skills (also vision, values, mindset etc.) which influences the effectiveness and the outcomes. To succeed you will need both efficiency and effectiveness. Doing the things the appropriate way and doing the right things at the appropriate times. Hopefully I don’t tell you about something new.
As a human, manager and team leader it is useful to keep in mind that one often doesn’t know all the answers and / or facts. One doesn’t have to know all the answers, too. Trust is an important factor. Trust in yourself likewise in the abilities of every team member. Results are just an outcome. Your role makes you responsible of the people, who are responsible for the results. Creating an environment in which people feel save, even they make a mistake, is often enough not done. They are often enough shouted at rather than letting them also finding the solutions and take responsibility. To fix what went wrong and learn from it. So they may never repeat it. Chances are that they will surprise you and come up with stuff that is better than all what you would have done or thought of.
Methods and techniques are just the tip of the iceberg. Any you already know of and / or practice? Which structures, which routines have you already implemented for yourself? I would be happy giving you useful hints, tips and tricks.
If you are in search of a role model, I point you to Simon Sinek. Also a fellow brain and a bright spirit. His public lectures (Ted and other) are easy to find. Let me know, if you need help picking the cherries.
