I've been brought into the organisation at a higher level to formulate a training strategy & make the function more business-focused. Naturally the established team (6 plus a team leader) are nervous about their future roles & any changes which I may make.
I'm planning a team meeting to introduce myself & give a bit of background as well as provide some reassurance & gain trust. I need to let them know my ways of working but also that part of my role is to audit the current function outputs.
I'd welcome any ideas for how I approach this meeting - should I be formal/do a presentation/have a meeting off-site/ask for questions & fears etc?
I want to establish authority but also engage cooperation & a positive working environment going forward to meet the changes ahead.
