How a New Manager Should Assert Their Authority

In Paul Petrone’s LinkedIn Learning blog post, Paul talks to Todd Dewett, a then LinkedIn Learning instructor and leadership consultant, about the challenges new managers face.

In the post Todd states –

“You have to create open communication and be seen as genuine and authentic. On the other hand, you have to establish that you’re the boss.”

Todd recommends new managers do three key things within their first month in order to build rapport with their team and establish themselves as a leader.

  • Start by tackling small challenges first

  • Co-opt key employees

  • Make a pro-employee change early

This post is a great read and relates to the first step in my Managing Friends: Part 1 post – Establishing your authority.
