Just finished my 3rd week. Things are getting better, and I’m getting the hang of things. Also have a much better idea why things were so bad previously. Have a general sense of how to get things cleaned up and move the team to provide more value add work, but its gonna take time. My bosses also have expectations of me which can be stressful at times. Forgot to add that I have 3 bosses. One is my functional boss, the CIO who sits in Hong Kong. My local boss is the country MD. BUT the guy who really calls the shots, is my BIG BIG Boss, the Regional MD, who hired me. Both the CIO and Country MD reports to him, and he wants regular updates from me too. He’s the one who’s really tough.
So far, things are going ok. Every week day is challenging, much more challenging than when I was in my previous company. It took about a week to 2 to settle in and get my mind wind up again. I’m praying every single day. 🙂 I’m glad that God is in this with me, and I’m happy that He will guide me and that I can rest easy, knowing that God will provide the resources that I need for every single thing. Amen. 🙂
