Publisher's Summary

When I first became a manager — an unexpected promotion soon after taking a new job — I found myself feeling awkward about the fact that I had been elevated above my peers. Still, my team was in the middle of a complex first-time project, so I wanted to impress my boss with my handling of it. My immediate instinct was to make it no one’s problem but mine. I worked longer hours and assigned myself all the tasks that I was afraid to ask my former peers to do. But soon I found myself roiled by the frustration that my colleagues weren’t magically stepping up to the plate. Were they somehow waiting for — or worse, willing — me to fail?
