Listen first and react after. Listen to your staff -- you can learn from them on how an idea can be implemented. Be sensitive and pay attention to body language -- everything your staff says does mean something. Ask them about themselves. You don't necessarily know more than they do.

Project Manager, Engineering in New Orleans:
"Contract is better than salary for Proj Manager type work."
The oil and chemical industries will always be busy and they pay well. Being a contractor (instead of salary) often pays better and is less stressful. As you get older you are less marketable so don't stay a contractor forever. Salary people look down on contractors, just be aware. I love being paid hourly.

"Learn it and learn it well."
Soak up what you can from your managers. They have a lot of knowledge and in no time at all can bring you up to speed with their skillset.
