If It’s Broke, Fix It: Handling Leftover Challenges Effectively [NEORLS]

If It’s Broke Fix It: Handling Leftover Challenges EffectivelyAll too often, outgoing supervisors leave unresolved challenges “for the next guy” to fix. Then, you arrive! As the new supervisor, you have two choices. You can look the other way, forge ahead with your plans and hope the old issues disappear (although, if they didn’t before, it’s not likely they will now) or you can fix them. The right answer is, of course, to correct the problems, so you have a clear shot at success in your position. But, how do you go about addressing something that might have been brewing for a long time? In this webinar, we’ll consider 5 Simple Steps to Starting with a Clean Slate. Learn how to use expectations, goals, communication, follow-up and follow-through to right the ship and move forward with confidence.
