I have seen more job changes over the last two years versus what I saw 10 years ago. Lots of movement and what appears to be opportunities.

In order to be successful you need to have a plan on what you are going to accomplish over your first 90 days.

Tom Mills put this guide together and I thought it be a fantastic resources for others.

There are a few things that I have observed that caused challenges.

Don’t make any significant changes even if you believe they are obviously needed. Your new company has been in business for a while and they must be doing a few things right. Your making adjustments will just put them on the defense.

Spend more time listening and less time talking. People love to contribute and I have found that if they come up with the solution then the solution will succeed because they have had an opportunity to be involved.

Pay less attention to the “yes” person and the “negative” person. Yes will always agree and negative will always find something wrong.

Understand that there are those that will agree in public and disagree privately. After all office politics is the hardest part of the new job.
