I'm an individual contributor in a group of engineers in the IT space. Luckily I've been listening to manager tools for a few years, because this week my manager is leaving the company and I was tapped to take on management of a small portion of the team.

Is there a podcast with guidance specifically addressing the process of transitioning from individual contributor to manager?

Hi! I was recently promoted to manager three months ago, and while I had been a regular MT listener for the last two years, I found the New Job series on the site very helpful (Map of the Universe>Changing Jobs>New Job). I would start with the casts "New Job Day One" and "First Rule for New Managers" as well as subscribe to the MT Basics podcast series so you can systematically implement MT guidance.

I know it's been a few months since you put out this query--let us know how you're doing. :)
