New VP struggles - asking seasoned VPs for help
Thanks to all you guys and the community for your well detailed advice on previous threads!I've recently been prom to VP, due to good perf as Assoc but also fast-tracked as many VP left. Strategy in the team was to move up assoc and hire analysts.
Sounds like a great opportunity for me after 3yrs as assoc but seems I'm struggling to cope with the VP transition role: lot of deal flow atm on which i still do most of the work I used to as an assoc, empty VPs desks, plus MDs are patching me now in a lots of clients meetings, besides I also need to mentor the assoc/analysts.
We often see a lot of advice for new analysts or MBA-assoc but not that much help about how to manage the VP role, in particular for recent ones.I like the bank, payouts were increased twice this year, the team is great and what I do still motivates me.
However, asking for mentoring advice here cause I'm really feeling a bottleneck and struggle with long days…Any seasoned or recent VPs that have been through this that want to share advice, tips??… there are many great VPs out there!
