I was a professional programmer for about 10 years. I was doing pretty well in my job till I got promotion 2 years ago. As my new role, I was supposed to do "people-management-cum-technical-lead" for a team having 10+ members.
I had never done any people management or technical leadership roles earlier, neither I got any training or time to prepare for it. My boss got sacked and I was literally put on his role suddenly.
It's been 2 years since then and I feel really trapped. I am not a great people manager as I keep to myself. I enjoy doing a lot of techie stuff but hardly get any time for it due to so many admin-type of tasks. I only get to do some code-review and that too in varied technologies.
With the lapse of time, I feel I am getting out-dated and am losing confidence in coding even simple things or discussing technical stuff.
Could you please suggest some ways to bring back my focus and confidence on technical stuff?
