I am amazed at what most leaders do NOT DO when they first hire a person. See I think this one thing is the MOST IMPORTANT and should be done on the first day of the new hire.
What is it?
You should spend time on what are the values and principles that you operate by and how they guide your team.
Values are modeled not taught. So, when you share what they are, you are always checking that you exemplify them daily to the team.
You are also setting the expectation of what you expect attitude-wise from every person on your team.
These are non-negotiable.
When you stand for your values and principles, even when it is not convenient to do so, that is when you earn the respect of those around you. You become more predictable in terms of expectations which means your team has a better chance at meeting those expectations.
