The First Ninety Days

August 24, 2012

With every new job, there is a short but finite honeymoon period — it’s called that, because similar to marriage, there is an initial rush of adrenalin and endorphins and obviously, the promise of the new opportunities — if there was not promise, why bother leaving one position for another? — and everyone bask in that glow.  In time, those feelings might change, and reality will gradually come back into focus.  Familiarity will erode the novelty and the real challenges of the role will become apparent.  Some employees already recognize this, but many are not fully aware/cognizant… your first ninety days on the job holds the greatest indicator of nearly all your future success in that role.
