This is maybe why there’s so much bad management out there:
“In our experience, most new leaders move through the most challenging job transition of their life without knowing exactly what this new job is, what is expected of them, or how to be successful.
Let me be direct: If you want your new supervisors to be more successful immediately and for the long term, give them crystal clear role expectations.”
This is a pretty serious issue. We know that people leave bad bosses, and organizations do next to nothing to teach people how to be better bosses.
That seems like a recipe for disaster.
Kevin’s advice below wouldn’t be the worst place to start putting together those clear expectations.
