THE CHALLENGE YOU’RE STARTING A NEW JOB THE SOLUTION LISTEN FIRST AND ACT SECOND
When you go into anywhere new it’s a good opportunity to take some time to observe and listen. Don’t make big calls too early. Get as much information as possible and learn what would be valuable for you to make the best impact. There’s nothing wrong with pressing the pause button – take your time and you’ll make the right impression because you’ll be acting on a better portfolio of information. There’s nothing clever about jumping in and trying to make an impression without having the information you need.
