For most of us, the prospect of having to meet new people, learn new skills, and take on new roles provokes uneasy, anxious feelings. For some, that anxiety escalates into dread, resulting in missed opportunities, disappointment, and failure.
Empowering newcomers to push past their anxieties and take action, "WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU'RE NEW" opens the door to exciting new worlds. "Put yourself out there, try new things, meet new people," author Keith Rollag, Ph.D., "urges the reader to seek the success, energy, and joy you deserve."
Every time we change jobs, move to new neighborhoods, take new classes, or join new clubs, we find ourselves surrounded by strangers and unfamiliar social situations. Most of us have had hundreds or thousands of these newcomer experiences in our lifetime. Occasionally, we might truly embarrass ourselves, or find ourselves snubbed by strangers. But most of the time, we have a relatively good newcomer experience.
New job. New employer. And new headaches when staffers resist your new approaches. How can you champion enough change to justify your hiring -- without rocking the boat so much that you endanger your career prospects?
Leaders in new positions often fail for a few common reasons: due to unclear or outsized expectations, a failure to build partnerships with key stakeholders, a failure to learn the company, industry or the job itself fast enough, a failure to determine the process for gaining commitments from direct reports and a failure to recognize and manage the impact of change on people.
Onboarding coaching of the newly recruited or promoted executive can turnaround this high rate of failure.
