Promotion and being a Fish out of Water
Fish out of water

Technical leaders are often victims of their own success. They were promoted in recognition of their intelligence and problem solving abilities. However, success as a manager and leader often requires a different skill set heavily weighted towards business acumen and solving complicated interpersonal issues for which there is no handy reference guide or Google search result. As a result there are often feelings of a fish out of water and uncertainty in navigating this new world.
