Beating “Interacting with Others” Hurdle #5

What is your interacting with others hurdle #5?

When a new colleague joins my immediate team, I do not schedule time with him/her so we can get to know each other.

What can you do?

– Schedule time with a new colleague (give him about a week to settle in) to ask how you can help him in his transition to his new role.

– Find time to meet and welcome a new colleague (maybe over lunch!); discuss what you do, how you do it, and what you will need from him in order to do your job well.

– Be persistent if your attempts to schedule time with a new employee do not materialize. Schedules can fill easily and time can pass quickly.
