From the minister's perspective
- Relief that the search process has come to a close.
- Exhilaration about endless possibilities and desire for a fast start.
- Continued grief about what the minister left behind.
- Concerns for family (if applicable): big changes and worries about the "fishbowl."
- Curiosity about people and systems, uncertainty about what the landmines are.
- Insecurity about others’ unstated expectations of the minister.
