100-Day Action Plan: Post #4 - Take Control of Your Start
You are your best advocate, so put your best foot forward. Take advantage of the time you get from acceptance to start. There will be weeks and in some cases even months from the time you say yes until you open the doors to your new office. Use this time to do even more focused homework on the company and your role. Consider the following: ID your key stakeholders, plan your entry message, conduct research on the company and people, conduct personal informal meetings, and do whatever helps smooth your landing on Day One. Check out pp. 85-92 for the heart of the book regarding both job and physical relocation.
