"I have had the very good fortune to have been promoted a couple times since I've joined my new communications technology company, most recently, to Director of Engineering. Along with the promotion, I inherited a team of about 30 engineers in another state in addition to the 50 already on my team) that were originally part of an acquisition we made a couple years back. I had little familiarity with them, their work and the culture they brought with them. The same, of course, was true for their knowledge of me.
One of the first things I did when I began planning my initial interactions with them was go back to my cornerstones that you helped me develop. They still ring true for me. I used these, and some of the material I originally developed during the Leadership Forum as a way to prepare for my first meeting with them. I think this helped me communicate some things about who I am, and helped me decide how I wanted to present myself to them. This was great work that you did for the people at our company. It's helped me at a number of points along my career path. I can't thank you enough."
