Managers are vulnerable in their first few months in a new role or job. It is critical to avoid the mistakes that can be detrimental to job success and careers.  Here are some things you have to deal with.

  • You need to learn the "lay of the land" quickly
  • You have to master some new work areas in a hurry
  • You need to grasp a hidden culture and how to work in it
  • You can struggle in relating to your boss and key co-workers
  • You don't know which relationships should  be developed first
  • You have to do things you have not done before in your career
  • You need to decide what to do when -  first, next, later

High Tech Experience

In my Director roles throughout my high tech career, I led initiatives focused on product development improvement, IT system deployment, technical organization redesigns and technical leader development. So I am uniquely effective when coaching executives and managers in technical groups like engineering, IT and product management.  I know your language and job challenges. This enables me to better increase your value-add messaging, impact and influence.
