So you mean in a week's time you've not completely won over the existing employees and convinced them the new guy's way is best? No doubt I am over stepping my bounds, and you'll find my suggestion preposterous, but did you give a thought to spending your first few weeks getting to know people and elicit their take on things? Maybe get some buy in through listening and seeking input from the folks that have been there longer than one week?
Just another thought, but even if you had the authority to "force it on people," do you know the likelihood that would be successful coming from the guy that's been there one week? An entrenched workforce can force out just about anyone recently hired.
