On-boarding has traditionally been seen as an HR responsibility and it’s easy to let the company’s training department make sure that new employees get off on the right foot. This is a good start, but research shows that when managers also get involved the process moves along that much faster.
In this webinar, Master Certified Coach Madeleine Homan-Blanchard will show you three strategies managers can use to get their people off to a fast start including:
- Painting the Picture: Managers often hope their employees will read their minds regarding the new job. Learn how to create a picture of what a good job looks like and how to monitor that your employee has “gotten” it.
- Sharing your Leadership Point of View: Don’t encourage new hires to spend their time “boss watching.” Take the mystery out of what you expect by spelling out your beliefs and expectations.
- Mapping Relationships: Today’s work requires collaboration and an exchange between people. Help your newbies understand how things really get done in your organization by drawing them a map of who is who, and what is what.
In many organizations, on-boarding is little more than making sure new people feel comfortable in the department. That only gets you so far. Don’t miss this opportunity to take a more proactive approach to getting people up to speed quickly.You can view the TRAINING here
