Every time we learn something new, join a new team, start a new project we really are Onboarding to a new journey. It’s a time of change with some practical realities that must be attended to efficiently, as well as cultural and personal changes that may be required to make the most of the situation. There are two important roles in this journey – the individual making the transition from potential to performance, and the manager that serves as their guide. Managers need to be prepared for this role so that they can create the conditions for success that will help their people thrive.
