LESSON 1: Surge Early with Proactive Outreach to a Broad, Cross-Boundary Network

Integrate rapidly by pursuing a broad network in the first 60-90 days. Build relationships across functions, expertise, locations and perspectives to get a full view of the people, the work and the challenges in your new context. Connect with people in ways tailored to their role and needs.

Core strategies:

  • Identify people in 5 categories: 1) formal leaders; 2) stakeholders/customers; 3) colleagues in functional or support roles; 4) teams/direct reports; and 5) peers.
  • Set a meeting with each to learn about their context, role and needs—not for an immediate request.
  • Tailor interactions based on the person. Learn how they prefer to work; offer help; build rapport.
