A huge part of your success is related to your ability to get results through others. If you are to get the best from others, you need to know your team and their respective strengths.
You need to build relationships with your team but you also need to build relationships with others across the organisation. This might even include partner organisations.
If there are some changes to be made, involve your team in generating possible solutions. Listen to their ideas; you might just be a little surprised on the quality of their contributions.
There are always lots of things that could be done but you need to focus on priorities.
Tempting as is might seem, going straight for a huge transformation or change early on is a huge risk. So start small and build momentum.
What simple tips based on your own experience, would you add?
