I'm in the very lengthy process of getting promoted to a manager at work (this year to manage the day to day stuff and next year to start managing people). I am a person who is taking work very seriously and I also suffer from performance and perfection anxiety! I feel my managers do not want me to start managing other people within the team even if I'm going through the transition to a manager (people management experience is key to become a manager). No one really told me that face to face but I know other people from the same team who were going through the same process had been given the opportunity to manage others straight away. Should I push them/ keep asking them or that would make them angry? Should I stop worrying too much about it since the initial deal was me to start managing people from 2022? Do you think I am overthinking? I just don't want anyone to come back to me in a years time and tell me "well, you did not have people management experience so we cannot really promote you right now"... Any advice please?
