I have so many of Bob Sutton‘s blog posts bookmarked that they could probably fill a virtual shelf. Bob’s thoughts on management and leadership are wide-ranging and cogent, and the community conversation that follows is always fascinating and helpful.
Today I want to point you to one of my favorites — a lot of smart people talking about what a new boss should do the first few weeks. There is great advice there for any “first” situation: you can do these many of these things not only in your first days with a new team, but also in your first ten minutes in any new work relationship.
