This infographic created by Profiles International offers 10 very common sense tips for first-time managers.

The first tip, ‘Accept that you still have much to learn’, is probably the most important. Many newly promoted managers often feel that they know all there is to know and do not always realise that they are just at the start of the learning process.

‘Set a good example’ is also perhaps one of the most important tips. Many high-profile leaders (such as Rob Ford, the ex-mayor of Toronto) seem to forget this one.

And the final tip, ‘Be patient with yourself’ is a pearl of wisdom.
