Sandy Barrow’s be a kind leader advice above is solid and i can’t add to it.
i’ve been thrust into leadership roles many times and groaned but i usually did things the same.
I delegate to people that I think can handle things, especially people I don’t like. by showing them trust it wins their favor (unless they’re evil but that’s actually really rare)
I pay attention to see if they follow through but not micromanage.
let people do things their way so long as the main goal gets accomplished

yeah you’ll do great. you’re concerned about it but willing to do it anyway so just by that you’ll be a good leader
