All aboard - mind the gap!
We have all had the experience and excitement of starting a new job.
Typically we start with great enthusiasm and perhaps a little trepidation. Our knowledge and technical competence accelerates smoothly. The "softer" side of things can be a bit more bumpy.
The initial honeymoon period wears off after a few months and reality starts to bite. Very often when this occurs we feel isolated and a bit lost. We feel we can't confide in our new employers because that would be like admitting our failure.
Benefit of an External Coach
That's where an effective coach can come in. Someone you can trust, who knows a bit about the company culture and yet is guaranteed to be confidential.
Through consultation with the organisation, we generate a comprehensive On-boarding brief which we then use to inform the coaching of the new hire. That way, they have a much better probability of "hitting the deck running" and shortening the ramp up period to full performance
