When others discuss my team I often hear “where your career goes to die, the career graveyard”. I don’t take prisoners, and I have a high churn of staff. I don’t need to be liked, I need to be respected for what I do.
My team have not embraced my changes; they are rubbish. HR has informed me absence is up and that the rumour mill is that most of the team are looking for new jobs. Good riddance, I say. Those who are not looking I would like to manage out. I want to bring in my own team and build a team that do what I tell them.
