Starting new things is hard—the first day of school, a new job, a new house, or meeting new people. For most of us, there's a feeling of anxiousness that accompanies these journeys. That's ok. Rationally, we often know there is no real threat, but the unknown and anticipation get in our heads.
As leaders, when new employees start, put yourself in their shoes. They are joining an established culture that can be intimidating. Foster inclusion from day one and use the opportunity as a culture check to ensure you represent the values someone would want to join and create an environment worthy of staying.
