Your first day as a leader in a new position is a huge opportunity to make moves that will either help or hurt you.

Mike, Shaun and David discuss practical approaches to your first day that will help you not only survive, but thrive in your new position. We talk about our own experiences in relation to the ideas that work for someone who is starting their first day leading a team.


SP: “I knew there was some level of disfunction there, but I didn’t think it was going to be 20 punches to the face back to back to back, all day long.”

MM: “You working on your craft doesn’t make you a better leader.”

“What kind of attributes do I need to lead this group well, since every group is different.”

DF: “It’s a tough call to have a complete, well-thought out practical vision on your very first day.”
