I have been a MT user for a few months now and now find myself asking for assistance / advice of other members.
A few months ago I got a new job. During the interview the company did tell me that I was heading into a position that was mismanaged for a period of time and was in a state of disarray. What they failed to tell me was how bad it actually was.
There are personnel issues, workload issues (some people over worked, while others play on the computer all day), there are no policies in place to govern worker behavior.
I have started using some of the MT tools with my directs, but finding it difficult to change past behaviors as other managers just let their directs do as they please. I am finding it hard to give feedback for a specific behavior when others within the company are allowed to behave in the same manner without consequences.
I find the situation very frustrating and difficult. Being new, I want to make a positive impression, but changing the behavior of my team, when others within the company are still allowed to continue their behavior, seems easier said than done.
I appreciate any ideas that you may have.
