Where to start - How about from the time I was told I got the job - great! I was extremely excited and was guns a blazin' ready to make an impact. Having been listening to manager tools for some time I thought I would have a good basis for managing effectively.....And then I started the job. It appears there has been a ton of both management and employee turnover in the last few years (mainly due to economic factors in the business) which has adversely (as would be expected) influenced the culture of the organization. It seems that the prevailing attitude is one of either "she/he won't be here long" (and therefore why bother) or the ever popular " I have been here an umpteen number of years so what do you know". The team I inherited seems to have the latter prevailing philosophy about the management (and dare I say me). I am at a loss for how to manage this group effectively. Part of the reason my boss brought me in from the outside was to make a "culture - change" but I am not sure where to begin.
I really need some coaching here! Thanks
