I started a new job yesterday with a new company as a manager. I've been managing for few years at different departments but it has all been under the same company. Now, I'm totally at a new company (a competitor of my previous company), I don't know how to explain my feelings maybe I'm feeling a bit anxious? I met with my direct reports and did a one-on-one with them to get to know each other better, all went well. I can see a lot of potentials and areas of opportunity. I'm not trying to lay down rules from day one or bring change immediately. I'm trying to gain their trust and respect. I still need to get used to their system even though I've been in this industry for several years now. Do you think this "anxious" feeling is coming because I don't know anyone in the company yet? Have you ever been through this? I've taken over new teams before but it has been under the same company, I don't think I've felt like this before. I feel very confident that I can bring great results here but I just don't know why I might be feeling like this.
Have you experienced this when you join a totally new company without knowing anyone? Do you agree with me at first building rapport with my team before I set expectations? When do you think I should move into the sales goal piece? I was thinking once I'm done with training so I can understand the system before I set expectations so I can lead by example? Once again I've only been here for two days and I feel like there are so many missed opportunities but I don't want to come off aggressive from the beginning when I start suggesting things. What other advice do you have for me?
