Senior Director, Public Affairs was asked...11 December 2020

How would I approach this new position in the first few months?

1 Answers

I would get to know the team and understand what currently drives them and keeps them busy. I'd also get to know other internal and external stakeholders so that I could do a stakeholder analysis. I would do a deep dive into the short- and longer-term business objectives and see how this lines up with my stakeholder analysis. Then I would set out targets for the team and re-align current individual targets and activities to ensure we could succeed. I would also implement a more robust performance dashboard to track inputs, outputs and outcomes so that the team is accountable and so internal stakeholders, especially the leadership team, understand the value the team delivers.
