First 100 days of your new role are crucial
Starting a new job is a challenge for most people, especially when you are going in at a senior level. Within the first few months you will have to adjust to your new company and role whilst at the same time influencing your team and ensuring that you create a positive working environment. After a week or two in your new role, you should begin to feel more at ease in your new environment. You’ll have met all your colleagues and built a tighter rapport with your manager, team and departmental colleagues. By now you will also know who to contact for most things and your general confidence will have started to increase, which will aid you in your work and making an impact.
The first 100 days are crucial as this is when you can influence your peers' opinions about you and your potential, establish who the opinion formers/key allies are in your organisation and make a positive impression whilst representing your company both internally and externally. Although you'll have displayed numerous qualities during your interview, your first few months in a new position will have an even stronger bearing on how you will be perceived by your new employer.
