10 Things To Know To Get Along With Your New Boss

10 Things To Know To Get Along With Your New Boss | Managing people not cogs in a machine | Scoop.it
It has been said there is but one constant, and that is change. Some live for it, while others fight it tooth and nail. Change can be at once exciting and frightening. Amazing how often those two words interconnect, isn’t it?
When that change involves a new supervisor, don’t fret. If you stay on the same job long enough, eventually you will experience this transition. Here are a few simple suggestions for those who embrace it and those not as likely to.
1. Be welcoming. Whether they are brand new to the company or were recently promoted from your own peer group, treat them as you would hope to be treated. Remember, this is a change for them as well, so put yourself in their shoes and help things get off on the right foot.
2. Be open-minded. They may do things a little different from what you’re used to, but someone decided they were what your department needed. Don’t be too quick to judge or criticize their managerial style. Given a chance they may delight you with the changes they make.
