I'd like to get the group's thoughts on whether I should contact our new CEO to get perspectives on priorities and plans.
Our organization was acquired by another about 18 months ago. My regional managment colleagues and I have recently found out that we're seen as 'barriers to change' which worries us given the purging of former executives from the merged organization.
We have a new CEO who has mentioned he has an open-door policy but has no contact with our region so far.
I'd like to take a proactive approach to demonstrating our openness to change and new initiatives. Perhaps getting a better understanding of the organizational priorities and the rationale behind some new policies, ect. would help open more effective communication channels and change perceptions.
Management between us and the CEO are in survival mode and I'm not sure they are standing up for middle management during this transition.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
