Set the default dashboard to something everyone might like, and then the users who don't like it can create their own. I'd suggest making other dashboards though, ones that work for specific users and then suggesting that they use them
There's also a few scripts for making those dashboards automatically "favourites" for users - I'd recommend only doing that for NEW users, as existing users who deselect dashboards are doing it for a good reason, and really don't like having other people's views forced on them.
