Awesome Boss is a unique suite of tools that help you elevate, engage, recognize, and reward your team.
Coaching Cue Cards are designed to help jumpstart conversations that you may need to have with your employees. Modify as needed based on your situation.
Note: It is important to allow new employees to get their bearings. If it has been a few weeks and they still do not seem like they are a confident and contributing member, then consider having a version of the dialogue below. Otherwise, you don’t want to add additional stress to the learning curve.
Hi _____________ , I wanted to reach out to you and make sure you are settling in to your new position. I know things can be a little crazy here, so naturally I want to make sure you get adjusted and acclimated as best as possible.
If you feel like you’re getting stressed or having trouble with anything, I want you to remember 2 things: First, you have a great team that can help you with anything you need. They have experience and advice to share, so don’t be shy to ask for help. Second, I’m always here if you need me. There’s no such thing as a stupid question and my job is to help you and the rest of the team succeed.
You are a valuable part of this team and we can’t get our job done without you. We wish you the best of luck as you get settled in, and definitely reach out for help if you need it. Sound good?
