    "Management isn't what it used to be. Chaos has replaced order, mobility has replaced security, and cynicism has replaced trust. As a result, men and women entering business or government today need to be savvy in ways quite different than their predecessors."

    8 MEET KEY CUSTOMERS AND PARTNERS

    8 MEET KEY CUSTOMERS AND PARTNERS

    What should be covered in my meeting with my key customers and partners?
    If you have a client-facing role or a partner-facing role, the first 30 days offer you an excellent opportunity to have an outside-in view of your own organization and your priorities.

    Your organization depends on the revenue coming in from your customers and partners. It is, hence, crucial that you address this audience comprehensively and clearly before you make any significant decisions.

    I suggest that you spend your days on the road and planes for the first 30-90 days. After that, you should make it a point to meet all your top customers and partners and some of your second-level clients and partners.

    The earlier you do this; you can understand the reality from the field. It is also crucial that you are well-versed with your teams, people, and business unit's priorities before meeting your customers and partners.

    When you meet these as external entities, your clients and partners would expect you to come prepared and may even raise a few pending issues for resolution. You should not find yourself to be sounding helpless or clueless.

    As a manager, you are expected to address the issue comprehensively with alacrity. Too many statements like "I will get back to you after checking" would not auger well for the first impression.

    6 MEET YOUR EMPLOYEES

    6 MEET YOUR EMPLOYEES

    What should be covered in my meeting with my employees?
    The Group Meeting:

    As soon as possible, plan to meet with your unit as a group to get acquainted. It is crucial in setting the tone of your relationship. Some points to cover in the group meeting:

    - Discuss your first order of business and ask for their help.

    - Tell them that you will meet with them individually.

    Individual Meetings:

    Individual meetings provide an excellent opportunity to prove that you are interested in each employee as a unique person. These individual meetings may be done after the group meeting. If the team is large, you might want to pick your team's critical members and start having one-to-one meetings. If you have a small group, make it a point to meet all the members individually.
