New Leader Transition Workshop
When a senior manager is new to an organization or work unit, expectations and concerns of the manager and his/her direct reports need to be addressed to foster communication and rapport within this emerging leadership team. Without special attention to making this happen, the team may encounter needless difficulties.
- To provide the new leader a clear picture of his/her organization
- To clarify priorities, expectations, and concerns of the top leadership team
- To help the new leader get acquainted with his/her subordinate leaders
- To provide a format for the new leader to express his/her philosophy about work and the organization
- Use When:
- The incoming leader is unknown to the organization
- Breaks in organizational continuity are unacceptable
- Little time is available for sorting and identifying problems
- Inaccurate information about the new leader has preceded his/her arrival
- The outgoing leader has been doing an outstanding job
- Leadership style differences exist between the old and the new leader
- Who should attend:
Incoming leader, direct reports of leader, any other members of the top team.
