You’ve been working somewhere for years, seeing growth and failures alike, suddenly - there’s a new leader taking charge! What do you do? In the episode, I will address a question I get pretty frequently around what to do when you have a new leader. I believe, when you’re with a new circumstance like this, with the correct response, you can turn it into a new opportunity.

So dive in, and let’s figure out what to do with your new leader!

On this episode:

  • Everyone has different reactions to having a new leader. I talk about the importance of relaxing and taking things slow, so you don’t make rash decisions and realize the new leader has a lot to navigate. 
  • I reveal the step-by-step process you can take whenever there is new leadership that will help you navigate the change and turn it into an opportunity for growth.

Key Takeaways:

  • Relax, slow down; there’s no need to panic
  • Where there is change, there is an opportunity 
  • Remember to build rapport 
  • Be real and authentic at all times 
  • Understand the new leader’s vision
  • Talk about what your team is currently achieving
