The Transition Meeting
- As the new boss, do you know how to reduce the down time for a newly formed work team from six months to two weeks?
- Do you know the serious obstacles to overcome when you are promoted to a position of authority over a team in which you were previously a member?
- Do you know how to take charge of a team of people you've never met?
What you don't know will hurt you . . .
One of the biggest impacts on a company or team is a transition such as new leadership. The team dynamics change, usually for the worse. There is a demand for the team to get up and running as soon as possible, but instead there is down time due to distrust and uncertainty. How you, the leader, deal with your new situation will determine team effectiveness and productivity.
"This gave me the opportunity to know the new leader in a very short period of time. The meeting went beyond my expectations, was absolutely necessary and was very helpful. They always do an excellent job."
