The Rise and Fall of a New Employee
How does a new employee impress their immediate boss? A new employee may rise above their expectations by the presentation of their work alone; this is the main element in delivering the objectives and goals of an organisation. A new employee’s boss will quickly get to know the capabilities, skills and qualities of his/her new employee. A new employee’s confidence level will be shown in their work; it will reflect their ambition and desire to ‘get ahead’ in a company.
The new employee should be cautious in accepting challenges, which are too high; too expectant and unrealistic, this will create a negative outcome for the employee.
A new employee who rises too quickly risks losing their identity, meaning it could prove difficult for their subordinates to comprehend how the new employee is now a boss.
To survive quietly and confidently but successfully, the clever employee will remain modest and unpretentious over their accomplishments.
This is where the new employee should be careful not to tread on other employee’s territory, frictions could arise, power-struggles, which could result in an unpleasant hostility for the new employee.
The boss of a new employee will want to be at ease with the firm’s newcomer and it is crucial for the new employee to respect his/her authority. The new employee should follow the principle that ‘the boss is right.’
