Start by being Prepared! Most people work to get a new role but then do very little before starting. Why start something so important without preparing properly for it?
You never get a second chance to make that first impression. Make it count. Plan your time. Have things straight in your head. Do the smart things. Use your first 14 days as wisely as possible!
Come together with your team. Understand them, their challenges, the team’s strengths and weaknesses. Set targets for short-term results that will cement your role as the leader of the team.
Achieving short-term results is the best way to ensure success. The team comes together. You shine. Your boss and peers see that you deliver. You prove that you are right for the role!
With concrete success already demonstrated, you can expand your scope. Look further. Raise the ambition level. Tackle more complication.
Evaluating how you are doing each week is a great way to see if you are on track for success. ELLA-users receive an email each week prompting the user to assess their progress. Your performance curve builds up week by week.
