How to Transition from AE to AE Manager?

I have a successful track record as a top 10-15% performing AE for 6 years in SaaS and am now interested in managing an AE team.


I'm curious to hear people's experiences in transitioning from AE to a 1st time manager -- it seems to be a mixture of hitting the right stage of growth in a company, tenure, and being the #1 performer.


Thoughts?

Before this pandemic hit, I had a dream.

I wanted to diversify thought leadership.


I wanted to make it easier for event organizers to source diverse, up-and-coming talent for their events.


I wanted to end "all white man-els" and those events where you've already seen ever single speaker at the last 3 industry events you attended.


I dreamed of a diverse speaker's bureau. A way to amplify the voices of ...

Team is 3 SDRs, 2 AEs. Thought I'd hit the FTS community first! I know most of us are in SD space, but if anyone with closing XP wants to be an early stage Sales Manager, this CEO is willing to give you the s...

I would be helping them break into "mid-market" accounts with deal sizes ranging from 250K - 10 mil. Basically, I would set up their sales automation and help close deals until they find a VP of Sales and hire an actual sale...
