"What They Don't Tell You About Becoming an SEO Manager."
It's all about managing process and people. To be a good manager in SEO, you'll be wearing multiple hats - from being a Specialist on specific accounts, to managing how the department operates, to being a mentor for the team, there will always be work. To excel at leadership, be willing to follow daily. Listen to your people - if you don't feel like they're worth listening to, build them up. If they present excellent ideas, use them.
