Short version: Is it a good idea to tell your directs that you follow the Manager Tools philosophy of management and then introduce the trinity roll out, starting with one on ones of course?
Long version: My organization is going through some changes and I'll likely have some responsibilities added. Another employee will be given some of my former responsibilities and I'll be supervising him in that part of his role. This will be my first time managing anyone. I'll only have one direct and we've been co-workers for over a year. I just feel like the best option is to be up front and explain that I've never done this before, but that I believe in the Manager Tools system. Then just introduce One on ones and start using it.
(I'm also open to any other advice for a first time manager.)
