One thought on “Congratulations, You’re Now The Boss: How to Take Over an Existing Team”
Thanks for this! I only wish this had been around when I took over an existing team in December 2014. Up until that point I had worked at a very small company from the day it opened until the day it closed. Although I’d led a small two-person team and indirectly managed others, I’d never in my career taken over an existing team. It was so much harder than I thought it would be! I had a very vague idea of what I should be doing, but nothing prepared me for the interpersonal dynamics of dealing with two people who were the whole department until that point; in addition to myself, two other people were added and we all started on the same date. I got through it, but I suspect I would have had better results in a shorter amount of time if I’d had this information.
