As someone who has been that person more than once, it is important to keep relationships in a good place prior to these transitions. If you are a leader looking to do more, carry yourself as such. Teresa

Realise that you may have to give up friendships because it can be tricky to give constructive feedback about performance issues to someone you are still going out to parties with etc. This is more an issue in 1st management roles but one that many find challenging.

I think one way to get buy-in from those peers you now lead is to find out what their aspirations are to move up and then be genuine in committing to help them get opportunities to fulfill those aspirations, if they maintain their commitment to working towards the vision you set. Of course, this isn't meant to be something to play favorites with with old cronies but is something you should do for all team members, but I think its important to have the conversation with former peers to let them know they're still important to your success and you want to create win-win situations throughout the organization.
