Choosing the executives you support throughout your career is rare. And even if you are fortunate enough to have some choice in the matter, it’s rarely permanent. I’ve accepted jobs to work for executives I really liked, only to have them leave the company months later. I’ve worked in positions where I was assigned additional executives after I’d been there for a while. I’ve also had executives relocate, reassign, or retire.
Regardless of the situation, there’s a lot that goes into onboarding a new executive. So this month, we’re helping you tackle the challenge and identify some strategies to get your new partnership off to a productive start.
One of the first things I used to do when working with a new executive was assess what I needed to share with him, and what I needed him to share with me. This allowed us to create a working relationship and lay a solid foundation that was beneficial to both of us.
In this week’s feature article, I share nine ways you can help your executive learn about your skills, your personality, and how to work more effectively with you. We’re also sharing tips and resources on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn on how to prepare for a new executive partnership.
