The leader s pack for meeting individuals when taking over a team

Introduction

Imagine you are taking over a team and have already taken the following steps.

You will have done your research and know what must be done to lead the team to success.

You will have made clear contracts with the key

sponsors about the picture of success.

You will have a clear mandate from these sponsors – the people who employ you - to do whatever is necessary to guide the team to success.

At the same time, it can be useful to have meetings with people in the team you are taking over. You will obviously do this in your own way. But here is one approach.

Explain that before the sessions you would like each person to do some pre-work. Say that you obviously have a view of the team's goals, strategy and road to success.

You would, however, also like to get their in-put. Invite each person to complete the following piece of work and send it to you before the session.

Introduction

Dear _______

As you know, I have recently taken over the leadership role in the team.

Obviously I have some clear ideas about the team’s goals, strategy and road to success. But it is also important to get your input. So I would like to meet with you for a one-to-one session.

Bearing this in mind, I would like you to do some pre-work before the session. You can then send it to me ahead of the session. We can then use it to focus on how we can work well together to achieve the team’s goals.

My Strengths

Introduction

This exercise invites you to clarify your strengths. Please be as honest as possible when doing the exercise.

* Describe the deeply satisfying activities where you deliver – or have the potential to deliver – As, rather than Bs or Cs.

These may be particular kinds of projects, tasks or other activities. Give concrete examples. Please note. The emphasis is on the word ‘Deliver’.

* Describe where you deliver Bs or Cs.

The B activities are probably those that you can do reasonably well. They are not your As, however, or maybe they once were but now you get bored doing them.

The C activities are those where you have little aptitude or desire to learn.
