I have recently started a new job and am seeking advice on navigating the new environment and synchronising with the staff and new responsibilities. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Dear Olson, Sorry for the delay in response. First of all congratulations on your new job. That’s a great accomplishment. Secondly the thing I recommend for all people starting new jobs is focus first on getting to know people and finding out WHY things are the way they are BEFORE you try to change anything. Usually people try to go full-bore and make changes to show how effective they are as leaders. IT’s much harder to be a leader who comes in and observes, but it paves the way for long-term change and loyalty. I hope this is helpful! Let me know how it goes!
