1.Clarify expectations. And from every angle
What does your boss want? What does your team need? What does the company expect from you in this role? Be sure to ask lots of questions and get specific answers. You don’t want there to be any surprises later on down the road.
2. Learn about your team.: One of the most important things you can do in your first 30 days is to get to know your team. Learn about their strengths, their weaknesses, and what makes them tick. The better you understand them, the better able you’ll be to lead them effectively.
3. Get a lay of the land.: In addition to getting to know your team, it’s also important that you take some time to learn about the company as a whole. What are its goals? What are its values? How does it operate on a day-to-day basis? The more you know about these things, the better equipped you’ll be to make decisions that are in line with what’s best for the company.
4. Set some goals.: Once you have a good understanding of what’s expected of you and what’s possible within the company, it’s time to start setting some goals for yourself and for your team. What do you hope to accomplish in your first 30 days? In your first year? These goals should be realistic but challenging, and they should give you something to strive for as you settle into your new role.
5. Communicate, communicate, communicate!: One of the most important things that any manager can do is communicate effectively with their team members and with other stakeholders within the company. In your first 30 days on the job, make sure that you’re clear about expectations and that everyone is on the same page when it comes to key objectives and deadlines.
2.Be both visible and available. It goes without saying that in your new role as a manager, you should be hands-on from the off
Assuming that you have already been given a clear idea of what your specific goals and objectives are for the first 30 days in your new role as a manager, the following tips will help you hit the ground running.
Be both visible and available from day one. Your team will be looking to you for leadership and guidance, so make sure you are present and available to offer support when needed. Let them know that you are approachable and open to talking about any concerns or issues they may have.
Build relationships with your team members. Getting to know your team on a personal level will help build trust and respect between you – both key ingredients for a successful working relationship. Take the time to learn about their backgrounds, interests and motivations.
Delegate tasks and responsibilities wisely. As tempting as it may be to try and do everything yourself, it is important to delegate tasks appropriately in order to ensure that work is shared fairly amongst your team members. Not only will this free up some of your own time, but it will also give others an opportunity to step up and show what they can do.
Set clear expectations from the outset. Help your team members understand what is expected of them by setting clear goals and objectives at the start of each project or task. This will ensure that everyone is working towards the same goal from the outset, making it more likely that targets will be met successfully.
3.Ask for feedback. We’re not just talking about, How am I doing? here
In the first 30 days on the job, a new manager should take the time to ask for feedback from their direct reports. This shows that you are interested in hearing what they have to say and that you are open to constructive criticism. By asking for feedback, you will be able to get a better sense of how your team perceives you and what areas you need to work on. Additionally, this will give you an opportunity to build trust and rapport with your team.
