Congratulations on your new role Kerri! My biggest advice would be to come in and LISTEN. As a new employee joining a new company and especially as a community manager, you want to meet as many stakeholders and community members as possible and really dive deep into the culture of the org and its community through them before you jump into doing anything or fixing anything that may be needed to be fixed. You have this unique opportunity to build relationships and learn from everyone else around you and a great excuse for it too. The second piece of advice I’d give you is to constantly remind yourself that YOU ARE ENOUGH. We tend to go into this crazy sprint to prove ourselves when starting a new job but you have to remember that the company that you’re joining hired you for a reason. They wanted you to join as much as you wanted to join yourself and being yourself is a lot already :)
