I've been a manager for a few years now, and I have always loved it. But recently, if I'm being honest, I'm really over dealing with other people's drama and having to be responsible for their performance. I used to be energized by coaching and developing direct reports, being their cheerleader and the one who recognized them, being empathetic and supportive to the challenges in their role. Now I just want to be like, "Less excuses, more ownership - you know how to do your job, so do it, and stop complaining."
I know this probably sounds terrible (please don't judge me!), but I dream about going back to an individual contributor role, only being responsible for me, and not having to deal with anyone's problems and workload except my own. I know being an individual contributor has its own set of challenges, but it sounds like a trip to Tahiti right now compared to running this team.
Have any of you managers ever felt this way? Am I really done with being a leader and is it time to call it quits? Or am I just tired/burnt out/need a vacation/to recenter myself and there is something else I can do?
