JOC Posted February 11, 2011 Share Posted February 11, 2011 I'm officially starting work on 1st March. As my kids will start schooling next Monday and I have a couple of days break, I will be dropping by at the office (international school) before my official start date. This will give me a chance to speak to my new colleagues and to check on my kids in the new school environment. The situation is that this position was created for me by adding have one additional layer onto the organization chart. They did not promote the team supervisor, a local, who has been working there for ages. There are 4 more ladies, 3 local and 1 foreigner, in this team at this location. There are at least 2 ladies, locals, in the team located at another location. I know the supervisor is older than me. So I will be leading the team from now onwards instead of my boss. I know that I will be implementing a number of changes to their current work processes and behavior. I want them to be more customer and service oriented. The changes to the work processes will result in more data-entry, each one will spend more time with each prospective customer, etc. I expect resistance to change from at least half the team and quite a lot of bitching. I don't want any of them to quit on me within the next few months. On the other hand, I have an aggressive growth target to meet. Any suggestion what I should use next week during my informal meetings with the team and the organization? I'll have to gauge their responses to make a decision on what to use during the first couple of weeks. Besides Cuddy Bunny, SS4W and Dominance, I believe I have all the UN pheros available here. I have the full set of the spell kit too. I had SWS and Persuasion Potion on the last time I visited the office. The Headmaster scheduled a last minute discussion with me.
