Having spent time discussing getting yourself through finding yourself on the street and working through a job search, Bob talks today about the things you as a leader absolutely don’t want to do your first few days on the job.
At time you should be thinking about ways to build your brand in the workplace. Be visible, start to network, and consider these things:
- Don’t eat lunch in your office. Get out and connect.
- Don’t multitask during meetings. It is easily seen as disrespectful.
- Don’t sit back and wait for direction.
- Don’t be silent. Ask thoughtful questions.
