Hi everyone, I am due to start my first management position at a new college. Ahead of my start date, I had a short meeting with my line manager to discuss some actions for this academic year. She then asked me to follow her in one of the classrooms so I can meet 4 of the teachers that I will be managing. I entered the room feeling excited and hopefull. I walked out feeling confused. This was supposed to be a very informal meeting...just to say "hello" and briefly introduce myself. I was met by cold stares....they didn't even bother to force a smile. How should I approach these teachers? How do I create a productive working environment with people who seem to dislike me from day one?
