In preparation for starting my new job, I’ve been reading Michael D. Watkins’ The First 90 Days – all about the fact you have just 3 months to ‘set out your stall’ in a new position. It gives suggestions of things you should and shouldn’t do in order to be successful and create a positive impression in your new role.
It then got me reading about organisations that are failing. Somehow it feels easier to learn from a system that’s struggling – it’s sometimes hard to spot what makes a successful organisation so outstanding because they do it so well it looks effortless! But you watch an organisation that’s lacking and you can’t help but be filled with ideas of what should be happening!
This will be my first new job in a new organisation in over 14 years! What are your dos and don’ts for making sure my first 90 days are successful?
