Introduce Yourself to Your Team

Learn how to converse with your team members during your first week as a manager.

First things first: it’s time to say hello. Working to improve the productivity and happiness of your team will take up much of day-to-day life as a manager. The relationship that you form with them is the foundation on top of which everything else is built. You’ll want to meet each of them in the most natural way possible, like in person or via a video call, rather than relying on email or chat software. You’ll also want to take the time to meet them all one-to-one, rather than just introducing yourself in a group setting. This is because you’re going to begin gathering information from all around you, and you’ll want to create a safe, private environment for each of your team to share their thoughts openly and honestly.
