Temporary Influence

Create an Impact as an Interim Manager by Treating Your Role as a Project

Earlier this year, I took a four-month temporary role on a leadership team to cover for an extended sick leave. I had to start the job without a handover, as the executive who had held the position for more than a decade already had been off for a while. Often when starting a new role, managers spend the first 100 days getting their take on the situation and coming up with a plan. That won't work for a temporary management assignment.
