On boarding New Team Members

Meet our newest team member. Yes cute, fluffy and a furball called Milo.

Here’s a few reminders that really hit home, no matter what type of team member you’re welcoming on board.

  1. Are all the existing team members clear and in agreement on roles and responsibilities for onboarding and ongoing integration, training, management etc?
  2. Are you as leader/manager clear and articulate about expectations, standards and boundaries, what’s ok or not ok? How do you ensure the new team member is on the same page?
  3. What do you have in place to welcome and integrate them into the team? Trainings, meetings, tools, systems, equipment, routines etc?

I loved puppy school. Not only because it was amazing for us learning about Milo and the needs of a dog, it WAS an absolute reminder for humans that we take so much for granted. We think we can ‘telepathically’ communicate and/or mind read and others should just ‘know’ what we want. We bunch everyone into being the same and forget the nuances of different personality types, that people aren’t their behaviours and so much more.

Have you welcomed anyone new to the team lately?

What have else have you noticed is really important to pay attention to?
