Starting a new job often brings a mix of excitement and anxiety. Take a proactive approach and prepare well, clarify expectations with your boss, understand how success will look like, learn fast and methodically, build relationships and alliances, build trust and credibility by going for early wins, keep calm and composed, help others through the change, and have a risk mitigation plan.

If you want to retain your employees, forget about office perks. Instead, hire leaders who care. Nothing can beat having fulfilling work where people are respected for who they are.
