I recently switched to a Partner Manager role at a different company after 10 years as an IC. While I still have a number to hit, it revolves more around top of funnel than the closing roles I've been used to for so long.
I'm about 6 weeks in and I find myself agonizing at times about my standing with the job because I'm not getting that dopamine hit from closing a deal that tells me I'm good at what I do. Anyone else deal with this and how long did it take you to shake it off? I feel like an addict that's had his hookup taken away.
All of my feedback has been positive from the org and co-workers, it's just that mental hurdle.
