Early Wins and Achievement

Gaining traction, enhancing credibility, building momentum in the new role requires the new recruit to get some early wins.

Being successful needs to become a habit for both the new recruit and their team, as small early wins build confidence trust and acceptance. If done well, early wins help create value and improved onboarding payback.

Success Breeds Success

  • Who Are The Stakeholders -  with every onboarding process, we must correctly identify all the stakeholders that can help the new recruit and their team deliver the early wins. Their influence, support and acceptance are vital to them succeeding.
  • What Does Success Look Like -  we make sure that there is clarity of the early stages of success and achievement, this must be created in order for the new recruit and stake holders to buy in. Then everyone can identify when the ongoing improvements are achieved. This clarity will provide a very simple platform for the new recruit to work to.
  • Develop A Prioritized Plan -   a step by step SMART plan will be developed, not only to give clarity but also riffle like focus to all the new recruits early stage activities, this reduces the chance of distraction and early underperformance.
  • Getting The Right Tools In Place -  every new entrant and recruit will require a certain set of tools to support them in gaining early achievement and success. It is our responsibility, together with the business, to identify these tools and make sure they are in place and suitable for delivering the prioritised plan.
  • Making It Happen And Deliver On Your Action Plan -  once the plan is written, stakeholders bought in and tools provided, then it's about the new recruit delivering on the plan one step at a time. We make sure that every barrier to success is removed and accountability is understood.
  • Ongoing Review And Support -  it is very common, that in most organisations, new recruits or entrants are left to deliver on their own, without consistent re-alignment and review. During this phase and all other phases, the process of ongoing review and support will be given. This cuts the chances of early failures and disengagement.
