"need to realize that manager need 2 things -know how to treat people (excatly the soft skills they are BIG on during the interviewing proseess, which is exactlly what managments lacks) AND managers need to go through all the steps of the ladder - you cannot manage people if you have not REALLY worked yourself. Many people cannot realize that in order to become boss you need to be ready to do all the things you made your employees do yourself and to actually know what does this mean to accomplish certain things."
