  • 1. The Leader’s Pack For Meeting Individuals When Taking Over A Team
  • 2. 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.
  • 3. 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.
