Smart things to tell new hires

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

The day someone joins your organization is the best time to exercise caring, strong leadership. Use the following statements to quickly turn a new hire into an eager contributor:
  • “I want you to disagree with me just as I will disagree with you.”

  • “There will be times when I can’t approve an idea that you bring to me or to another member of our team. I will always try to explain why I have done that. In most cases, it will be because we lack the resources to put every good idea in motion. Never feel that an idea that gets delayed is a dead issue. Bring it up again.”

  • “Please tell me what you would personally like to accomplish, and let’s discuss how to make that happen.”

  • “In your first days and weeks, you will be in a unique position to notice what is working well here, and what is not. Can I count on you to bring those fresh insights to my attention?”

  • Also explain how the reporting chain works. If your new hire’s supervisor is not addressing a problem or concern, do you want to hear about it directly, or not?
