I think it's awesome your starting a new job. I would be nervous too but that's to be expected. Keep yourself motivated by staying busy. Switch up thing's when they become repitishous or boring. As a manager you'll be busy with much paperwork, meetings, seminars and problem solving. The biggest obstacle as a Manager in my view is dealing with the multiple different personalities you face managing many employee's. If you can take a class on this it would greatly benifit you. But in general, be fair, be respectful but not too nice. I would be the Manager you would want to manage you. I wouldnt ask of someone anything you can't do or wouldnt do? Treat them as people and not numbers. GOOD LUCK TO YOU, you will have to let us all know how it goes. Have a good night.
