Making a Manager

The struggle to stay true to your professional and personal values.
The compromises that undermine your integrity.
The fixation on budgets and performance 
The gradual desensitisation
The loss of faith in human kind due to chairing too many abuse investigations.
The realisation that you have become so good at faking passion even you can't tell.
The loss of street credibility
Being ambitious
Saying the right thing 
Caring too much what influential others think of you.
Becoming over confident in your own abilities.
Having bounce back ability
Claiming credit for successes 
Avoiding being associated with embarrassing disasters 
Being considered a safe pair of hands
Having a good looking track record
Moving on before being found out 
Being very ambitious
