Welcoming New Leaders
Thursday, 8/20/15 @ 4:ooPT & 7:00 ET
An invitation to join an organization steeped in action-taking and encouragement as leadership is by definition an invitation to lead. Neither followers nor the obsequious need apply.
But how does that invitation translate to leadership in the organization and how do we inculcate it from day one? Taking a bit of a pragamatic turn, is onboarding vital to leadership development in an organization? If so, what does that onboarding look like? If not, why not?
That’s the discussion this week at #GTIdeology Happy Hour, framed by our 7th Radical Idea: “We work with our friends. We profit. We have fun.” in collaboration with our friend (and Happy Hour regular), Kristin Johnson. We hope you will join us on Thursday (8/20) to kick of the weekend and share your insights at 4:00 PT & 7:00 ET.
Here are the questions:
Q1. In your opinion, what comprises the onboarding process?
Q2. Per our 7th Radical Idea, we believe that onboarding is the ongoing process- from initial contact through leaving the organization- of nurturing and encouraging leadership in its particular culture. What do you think?
Q3. Agree or disagree: Onboarding is not an HR function, but must be owned by each member of the organization. Why?
Q4. Discuss the relationship of onboarding, leadership, and organizational development.
Q5. Do you have experiences with really good or really bad onboarding? Or opinions about how to maximize its value? Tell us about it!
You’re invited to — and we hope that you will — join us at 4:00 PT & 7:00 ET on Thursday, August 20, to unofficially kick off the kick off of weekend and discuss this important topic with our smart, fun, and friendly #GTIdeology Happy Hour crowd.
Here’s a cool video intro…
