The first month should be about learning. Too often people get into a new role and they’re excited to make a mark, to prove themselves in some way. But, this is a mistake. Leadership requires understanding the big picture as well as all the small nuances of the organization or department. By observing for the first month, listening to the people around you, taking in as much information as possible BEFORE taking action you set yourself up to succeed in the new role.
