For anyone taking on their first management job is a real challenge. My own experience was pretty rough (as you can read in the article above). Many women don't get the kind of mentoring and support they need to succeed in their first management job, and this is a shame because without it, we find it more lonely and more difficult to suceed in getting our second management job (i.e., the broken rung)

The solution? Be smart about learning the skills of leadership early on, and pass on what you know.
