Moving from the leadership of one team to several almost inevitably means that you will need to lift your own level of daily engagement up a functional level. Trying to ‘micro-manage’ is never advisable, as it suggests a lack of confidence in your colleagues and team members but it also becomes increasingly impossible when you’re being asked to work across several teams. So, whatever form it takes, you must cascade down some of your previous single-team leadership responsibilities in order to free up your time for deployment across multiple teams. Don’t underestimate the challenges here because delegation isn’t always easy.
