Every employee knows what it's like to have a leader come in hot with a fresh vision and throw current plans out the window. Unfortunately, this kind of chaos breeds organizational instability. Today on True North Leader, Shawn Lovejoy, tells us that new leaders have a hard time discerning between opportunity and distraction. He knows this from personal experience.
