Find out what amount of communication your boss wants, and whether they prefer 1:1, email, or phone. What are the signs of their mood? What's the best time of day for them? Remember that their time is more valuable than yours.
- I mentioned in an earlier video…that it's a good idea to be PEAR in times of change.…P for Positive, E for Easy to work with,…A for Appearing in control, and R for Reliable.…And I think, when you get a new boss,…they will want all of these.…But in particular, I want to suggest five ways…that you can be easy to work with…when you're getting started with your new boss.…First, how much communication do they want?…They want to be kept informed, of course.…
But, are they a micromanager,…so they want a daily summary of everything,…or do they only want to hear from you…when something's happened,…or only when there's a problem that you need help with,…otherwise just get on with it.…How can you find this out?…Well, probably just ask them.…"How often do you want a report on this?"…"Is this more information than you need?"…Your objective is to reduce the amount…of reporting over time,…and this will probably happen naturally…as they grow to trust you.…So, all we're concerned with here…is getting the starting level right.…
