I was going to disagree with you. Looking at it from the perspective of the "Big Dawg" if you don't need an active manager for 90 days you really don't need that management position.
After reading your article all the way through you make good points. I've been there when new managers "hit the ground running", determined to show the big shots they were making changes before they understood the biz. While the ensuing disaster is entertaining after the fact, I don't want to be in the middle of it during.
Absolutely, 100% on target!!! A new broom may sweep clean but if you are not careful you will sweep your best people out the door because they are angry at you not dissatisfied with their job. Unless you are taking over a bankrupt organiztion they were obviously doing something rightor they would not have been in business and able to hire you. Take your time. Get the folks to be onboard with you first then your ideas. No one is a leader until they are accepted by the ones they are supposed to lead. Come across as a jerk and the only change made may be you looking for another job beause passive resistance will make your life miserable.
I would seriously wonder about this person if they didn't have the acumen to have these basic steps under their belt before being hired as a manager.
