The New Sheriff in Town

Short Form


Congratulations, you got that new green-field job where no one has done what you're going to what?


My career specialty is walking into chaos and organizing it. I have always thought of this as the sheriff riding into town and bringing the law so that the town can grow up with grids and opera houses and two room schools.

I’d like to take almost two decades of my thrown-in-the-deep-end experience and share them with you, breaking down how you can find out what needs to happen and how you’re going to do it and look like a hero.
