Take the guesswork out of a relationship with a new manager by having an up-front conversation about expectations.
No doubt, you’ll need to talk about the nitty-gritty of your everyday tasks. But don’t leave the conversation at that. Get a big-picture snapshot of your role, so you can come to a better understanding with your new boss.
Three questions to start with:
1. “How does what I do help the entire organization?”
2. “What can I expect from you?” Most managers strive to be “available,” but everyone has a different idea of what that means. And a manager’s availability may change as you graduate from newbie to veteran.
3. “What should I expect from my team members?” Employees need to know who does what so work can get done on time and well.
