Great post. I wish I had this advice when considering a change from IC to engineering manager! The thing I didn't think through enough was: "you don’t need everyone to like you all the time". I was well-liked as an IC and giving that up as a manager was a difficult adjustment for me. It was hard for me to be a villain in someone else's story (exits, perf reviews, etc).
