For many experienced professionals looking to move up the career ladder, a role in management seems like an inevitability.
Offering better pay, more authority and an opportunity to make a real difference, a move into management appears to be an attractive prospect. Consequently, many people accept such roles without giving serious enough thought to the realities and responsibilities that come with management.
