How To Succeed In Your New Job

 You’re All In

(M) No foot in the door for you. Congratulations you beat the competition and got the job.  Now the challenge is to succeed in your new position, and that is Joanna’s pick of topic for this week’s He Said, She Said.

Why Are You The Chosen One?

(M) You beat the other candidates to the position.  Maybe you knew someone, and that put your resume on the top of the pile.  Maybe you did well on the written tests and various interviews.  Notice I didn’t say you scored the highest of all the candidates or had the strongest resume. The only reason you were chosen was because you were judged to be the best candidate to fit within the organization and fulfill the company mandates.  No matter what your business is the success or failure of the enterprise will ultimately be determined by the team.

2016年月日 - 78jitong - 元旦快乐What Do You Know Going Into The Job?

(M) Nothing.  Even if you know someone at the company, you know nothing.  The person you know may be good or bad at his or her job, liked or disliked. Your friend may keep up on the latest developments in his or her profession or just do the job the way he or she has always performed the work.  You are Swiss.  You are neutral with a positive attitude and a warm demeanor. You have a blank canvas on which to create your reputation and don’t let that be smudged in any way by other people’s bias or choices.

You might think you know your job, your hours, and your salary but you really don’t.  You have no idea what the real expectations of your manager or co-workers are or the hours that are needed to perform the tasks at hand.  You may have agreed upon a salary but until you are in the arena and know the real hours required to perform your duties one doesn’t know the workload, actual remuneration or time needed for the work to be completed.

Prior To Your Arrival

(M) Once you know that you have the job, it is worth your time to continue researching your company and your competitors’ companies. This information is for your eyes and mind only but will enable you to make faster and more informed decisions once you are acclimatized to your new position.  I never view competitors with a static mindset.  It’s always what are they doing well, how can I do it better and what are they missing?  If your interviews and testing were done at your new place of employment, then you also received the visual cues as to how you should dress.

2016年月日 - 78jitong - 元旦快乐Dress For Success Not Rejection

(M) Apart from not getting arrested for public indecency, your primary purpose for your work clothes is to fit in with your co-workers. When you saw the office or factory during the interview process what was the unofficial/ official team uniform?  Do the employees wear suits or dresses or is it jeans or coveralls if the work dictates their usage? 

If you are a lady with a wonderful figure, keep it to yourself.  If the office has a daring girl who wants to show the world, her personal assets leave the show to her.  If you are a gentleman, don’t wear a more expensive suit than your boss.  Well tailored yes but don’t upstage your superiors or create jealousies or resentment with your co-workers.  For either sex, your smile, your warmth, your authenticity and your work will shine brightly and give you differentiation in the workplace.

When you have worked for your new employer for a month, you can step up your wardrobe efforts but still not at the expense of your superiors.  Your wardrobe is about gaining acceptance in the workplace with your peers.  Your clothes, hair, and makeup if you wear it should reveal some of your personality, but man or woman subtlety is the theme of your look.

2016年月日 - 78jitong - 元旦快乐It’s not 7 or 30.  It’s 2-5

(M) Forget the popular mantras of you have 7 seconds or 30 seconds to make a first impression.  Forget also the other negative undermining nugget of you only get one chance to make a positive first impression. 

It’s your first day on a new job.  No matter how well you prepared you will have some nerves.  Everyone has been in your shoes and even the people who have forgotten what that feels like know that whatever your position is that you have to get up to speed.  In high-stress jobs, you have two days to get up to functioning speed.  In most jobs you have a work week.  You can do it.  Keep calm and focused on what you need to do to function and perform your part in the company.

Usually, you will be assigned a mentor but don’t be afraid to ask questions of other people.  This is why acceptance and getting to know people from the outset is important as it will enable you to identify who is best to help you gain the requisite strengths in your new position. 

Try to stand on your own feet as soon as you can. No one wants to do your work for you.  They’re happy to bring you up to speed as it helps out the team and makes life easier for everyone but they all have their own work to do. I find older employees make the best “helpers” as younger peers can sometimes feel competitive toward you and forget that the company cannot achieve objectives if the team isn’t all pulling in the same direction.

2016年月日 - 78jitong - 元旦快乐Nil Sine Labore (Nothing without labor)

(M) Always be on time for your work.  Preferably fifteen minutes before your official clock begins.  This gives one time to socialize with peers or gives you some wiggle room if the unexpected happens. 

In your first week and in subsequent weeks don’t be afraid of staying later but choose that option wisely.  Staying late at the outset of a job is accepted by everyone but staying late and upstaging your co-workers can backfire on you. 

If your work is no better than your peers and yet it’s taking you longer to accomplish then, your boss will think you are struggling and the weakest link in the team.  If your work is better than your co-workers, your boss will be pleased but remember you are the new person on the team.  Maybe the manager can ship a lower performer out of the company or maybe if he feels that you are disrupting the dependable team already assembled which was fulfilling the business objectives the boss may ease you out of the enterprise.  There are no hard or fast rules on these scenarios.  Don’t dumb down your work ethic or standards to fit into an organization.  Find yourself a better organization that will appreciate what you bring to their company.  You will have to make a judgment call

Also, even if you love what you do don’t do what I did and work 110 hours a week.  It can be ruinous to your health, and it will creep up on you.  Have a life, work hard, love harder and enjoy a sunset.

For Managers Only (Or Those Who Want To Manage)

(M) Lucky you, because more often than not you will have five days to create a first impression.  Job one for you is to gain clarity from your boss as to what his expectations of you are and in how he or she wants to work with you.  Listen intently to the response and don’t leave the office without knowing how your boss likes to be kept appraised of what is going on.

You will know if you have a good boss because he or she will be both supportive and candid with you when defining what he or she needs from you.  If you have a bad boss, he or she will want to be informed of everything.  In essence, you are just another pair of hands.  A good boss hired you to do a job and wants you to get on with it accomplishing your tasks on time and within budget.  He or she doesn’t want you bothering him with the decisions you have been mandated to make on your own.

As with the employee you first task as a manager is to get up to speed by getting to know your employees, listening to them and finding out the strengths and weaknesses of your team.  You would be amazed at the number of managers who fail to elicit full buy-in from their team by listening to them and validating the thoughts of these front line soldiers.  If possible, arrange one on one meetings with each of your team members. 

Your initial goal is to listen and then offer them your support.  How can you help this employee to do the best work possible with the time that he or she has for the task at hand?  What constitutes success in the employees eyes and in the company’s eyes?  Yes, failures will be inevitable, and lessons must be learned but from the outset, you are preparing individuals including you and your team for success. Meeting individually with your team members will enable you to plan your subsequent team meetings more effectively because you will have a much better idea of who you are dealing with in your group.

Clarity regarding expectations, duties, support, and results makes both your employers and your team’s workday more rewarding and life’s too short to be miserable.  One on one meetings enables trust and candor to be achieved in the quickest way possible and reduces the chance of any miscommunication taking place.

No matter what the role always empower your employee to see how his or her contribution is vital in achieving the team objective.  This type of employee recognition results in an increase in the quality and quantity of work produced and reduces the loss of good employees to your competitors.  It isn’t about the money because the going rate for a job is similar at all of your competitors.  It’s about satisfaction, being valued and recognized for your work and working in an enjoyable environment which you as a manager are responsible for creating for your team.

So far your first day hasn't been bad at all has it?  Let's make it even better.  Here's Joanna on first day/week success.

The Do’s and Don’ts for your new job!

(J) When you start a new job you want to ensure your success, right? After all, not only did the company you just moved to spend a lot of money on their recruiting process you also probably invested quite some time and effort in your search too. You may even have switched industry, made a career change or taken a leap in role. So how do you best capitalize on your new role for the good of the company, your boss, your new team and for you? Certainly you don’t want to commit any political ‘faux pas’ in your first few days or weeks which could impact your image and long-term success.

Here are a few things you should probably do if you want to make a good impression in your first few days, weeks and months.

  • What are the goals round here?

(J) As soon as you can check-in with your boss on what the departmental goals are and ask them where and how they think you can contribute effectively to those goals, while simultaneously learning and fulfilling your new job description. If this can also help you gel with the rest of the team and develop yourself professionally too, then so much the better!

  • 2016年月日 - 78jitong - 元旦快乐Discover your niche!

(J) Often when you were hired you were taken on because you filled a certain skills gap – but no doubt there might be other competences or knowledge you have, either within or outside your department, that no one else has. Try and find out what that niche might be and show initiative in displaying how you can add value in ways others can’t.

  • Network your heart out

(J) If your company hasn’t already lined up a number of induction meetings with other department heads or colleagues in other parts of the company then challenge yourself to do so. And even if they have set up meetings, then pay close attention to the people you meet and if they mention other significant or influential members in their teams. Then, either formally or informally, ensure you meet those that might prove to be important internal clients and stakeholders in helping you perform your job to a high standard.

  • Be a giver

(J) This point is connected to the point above – if you want these people to help you out then ask and listen to them about their role; their pain points when dealing with your department or function and what really drives them nuts on a personal level! Explain where you might be able to help them overcome obstacles in their own job through your role; what can you give to them? How can you reduce stress or friction and ease their pain? In the long run this will help minimize your stress too!

On the flip side though there are also quite a few things you shouldn’t do if you want to secure your short-term and long-term success in the company and role.

  • Don’t brag

(J) So you got the new job but don’t let it go to your head. Sure, you probably got it because you have showed competence and excellence in your previous role. However, you still need to prove it and the best way of bragging is in the doing, not the saying. There are ways and means of talking about your previous experience or expertise, without coming across as expelling a load of hot air. Be careful to only talk about it when it shows how you can add value to the organization, department or team.

  • 2016年月日 - 78jitong - 元旦快乐Mind the office gossip

(J) Usually it’s pretty obvious who the office gossip is within only a few days of being in a company. Tempting though it might be to associate with them, since they are often so desperate to have a captive audience and you might be feeling a little lonely in those first few days, don’t! And for sure, if they are talking about others in the company without tact or diplomacy then you can be damn certain that in next to no time they will be talking about you behind your back too. Don’t give them any mud to sling and it won’t stick.

  • That’s not how we did it…

(J) OK, sometimes it’s worth sharing how things were done in your old work place – to help either share best practice or give words to the wise about previous mistakes and errors, maybe even help your boss and new colleagues understand from where you are coming. But no one wants to hear constantly how things were or were not done in your old company or by your old boss and colleagues. You don’t work there any longer and continually harping on about what once was (good or bad) shows a reluctance to let go of the past and settle in to the new organization, team and role.

  • I’m your new best buddy!

(J) It’s a fine balance between showing how and where you can add value to your boss, team and organization and defining your uniqueness with coming across as trying to be everyone’s new best buddy. No one can become that and it’s a willow-the-wisp to believe that you can. I know it can also be tempting, when trying to fit in and join in other’s conversations at the lunch table to agree with all that they say or find points of commonality at every turn – but ultimately you will seem fake, a flake, insincere and inauthentic; erasing your singularities and damaging your credibility, influence and authority along the way.

(M) Well, that’s a wrap for the Congratulations You Got The Job special edition of He Said, She Said.  We’ll see you next week.
