On being a bad manager
Jason Fried

Another thing I have witnessed first hand with new promotes is that they usually were some of the top contributors in their area before they were promoted, and their expectation is that everyone else is as fast or as good as them. Realizing that a team is comprised of various individuals, all with different skills and abilities (and none really the exact same as the new manager) is often a rough adjustment as those expectations get re-adjusted and they realize how to use the different skills in their team.
