Work hand and hand with your employees fixture out what is working and what is not working. Set up a group of employees who can work together and have a open mind to think about the company its reputation and how to stat supporting one another to gain the upper hand and move past. Don't want to keep the doors on a rotating compass. Get them in get them trained and work through step by step. Hit success not walls.
Work hand and hand with the employees to understand what they need and leverage that towards the company. The more the employees are treated like family they will treat customers like friends and this will cause a good prospective working relationship. Which will help make employees want to get out of bed to come and work.
Step down and let some one else run the company that has actually worked at one if not many of the plants he oversees.
Get things done in a timely manner
