Lisa Haneberg has a great post on her Management Craft blog titled, Katie Couric’s Attention. It points out the massive effort that CBS has put behind making Katie Couric’s start as anchor for the Evening News a successful one.
Lisa asks the question: how much effort do each of us put into helping new leaders and managers of the companies we’re involved with successful right out of the shoot?
She makes a great point with a good, public example. Given the cost of bringing high-level people into an organization, you’d thhink the relatively small incremental investment in helping them quickly gain success would be a no-brainer. Often – perhaps most often, it isn’t.
Come to think of it, I may have some work to do . . .
Check it out. You may too.
