I have a question for you. You just started a new job. You have been through what passes for the company orientation. You are comfortably situated in your cubical, and you have all the office supplies you need. The folks from IT will be down later in the day to set you up on your company laptop, company mobile phone, and they will even allow you to mirror some of the company applications on your own personal devices should you decide.
You have meetings set for the next several days, to meet with your team leader, supervisor, and the group manager. To say you’re excited would be an understatement. This is a big step for you. In all reality, it is really your first “real” job. All those other jobs, tending bar, working at the local hardware store, along with those few jobs you had that were shall we say, a tad bit dubious, are nothing compared to this one. This to you is where you start to make some real money. This job is why you went to college; this is the beginning of you starting a career.
So I ask this question of you, how much time do you think you have to make an impression? After all, from the way the cute HR Rep talked it seems like this is a place you can have a great future. Plenty of opportunities all you have to do is apply yourself and life will be great. But, again, I ask, how long do you believe you have to demonstrate you are someone that the company should make a long-term investment in?
Allow me to say both questions are rhetorical. Let me provide the correct response. You have ninety days, nine zero. Another way of looking at it is, you have three months to adapt, adjust, conform, and impress. Not a lot of time you say. You’re correct. But, it’s not impossible. However, let me be clear, fail and the outcome can affect you in ways you would never image.
Let me introduce you to two concepts, R.I.C.O., and P.E.O. The first RICO stands for Regular Access, Immediate Feedback, Consistent Measurement, and, One to One Relationship. The second PEO stands for Personal Economic Opportunity. They are connected. How they are connected will be discussed in a series of posts.
Before I continue with an explanation of RICO & PEO, It is important you understand you are working on an unofficial/official time limitation. You have approximately ninety days in which you need to:
a)gain a basic understanding of the roles and responsibilities of your job,
b)become rudimentary familiar with the company’s organizational structure,
c)build basic relationships,
d)develop basics of a plan that allows you to demonstrate your value to the company on a level that you are noticed by those who can enhance your career.
Simply put, during your first ninety days, you to have developed a plan by which you can demonstrate you can turn the value you’ve consumed into valued created. That you are someone who is an asset and not a liability.
I know, seems like a lot, especially for someone who is new, but, if you have plans for advancement with any company you work for, then you need to stop behaving like a recent college graduate. You need to start thinking and behaving like a seasoned veteran of the interoffice game of politics.
As clichÃ© as this sounds your chances of having a successful and profitable career depends on what you do during your first ninety days on the job. Over the next several weeks I will be sharing some thoughts and insights on how you can develop a plan that will allow you to become a corporate star during that ninety-day time frame. Watch this space.

Well here we are at the final question for consideration; Are we helping you have a fulfilling life? Of the three (Are we helping you be effective in your current job? Are we helping you build a successful career? Are we helping you have a fulfilling life?) this is perhaps the most challenging.
Why, for this simple reason, you have to consider what you really want out of life and how your current job is a) helping you achieve it or b) the possibility that what you are currently doing won’t remotely get you there regardless of what management may or may not do for you.
If you feel that management isn’t helping you have a fulfilling life, and you want their assistance in balancing that out, you are going to have to be specific in what you want, and how you want them to help you. This will require you to have really thought about what you want from this job. By thinking about it I mean the following:
- What have you done to lay out your plans for possible advancement in the company? Keep in mind this question is tightly integrated with the first two. Being effective in your current role, and helping you be successful.
- So if you’re planning on having a long-term career with the company it only makes sense you have to develop your own plan for moving within the company, this plan should include any training you feel you will need. Don’t forget to consider the possibility of relocation.
- This also means you are thinking about life balance.
There is also the possibility that as you contemplate this last question, you realize that working for this company is not something you wish to do long-term. If that is the case, you then need to be thinking about an exit strategy.
When putting together your exit strategy using the questions we have discussed, can provide clarity around what you will want in your next job.

The second question under consideration from our discussion on exit interviews is; Are we helping you build a successful career? The idea behind this question is to solicit how management can help you be a success during your tenure with them. Keep in mind, if you’re successful so is your manager and the company. Not to mention happy customers which lead to strong sales and great profits.
Take a moment and ask yourself this; why do you think your manager would ask you this question? Could it be, they see you as someone with high potential and want to know how they can help you succeed in the company? If that is the case, then don’t you think you owe it them and yourself to have the essence of a clear plan with goals, outcomes, and metrics? Don’t be caught flat-footed. Allow me to make a simple but effect suggestion.
Many have the belief that a successful career plan requires spending hours upon hours of planning every possible step. It is true planning is required. But not on the level, some believe. Let me suggest that you think and plan in ninety-day increments. Doing it in this manner allows you provide specific areas where you manager can assist you in your career development. It allows for measurable results along with the opportunity to make adjustments.
Good and talent people are hard to find and keeping them is important to the organization. So when you’re asked the question Are we helping you build a successful career, be ready with a response along with examples of where you could use their help. By having your ninety-day plan developed, you can provide specific areas where you can use their help. Not to mention, it opens the line of communication between you and your manager. To where she is really looking to help you, and not just asking a perfunctory question.

In a recent post, I mentioned three questions that a manager should be asking of their employees. As a reminder the questions were: Are we helping you be effective in your current job? Are we helping your build a successful career? Are we helping you have a fulfilling life?
Let’s consider the first question, helping you become effective in your current job. It may seem obvious why a manager might ask this question. Logic would dictate, the more effective you are, the more productive you would be in handling your assign tasks. But, I submit there is more to it than just making you more productive.
Every manager or supervisor goal is to have competent people working for them. The more effective you are at your job, the mover effective they can be at their job.
With you becoming more effective in your current job, you win, and you start to receive more challenging assignments. Your manager wins, as they now have an employee who can take on more responsibility and she too can assume more responsibility. She has an employee who she is comfortable in knowing that she can count on you to do a good job. The company wins as it now has two employees (you and your manager) who are more effective and productive in their roles. The customers win as they are dealing with a company that has highly trained and effective employees.
So if asked the question are we helping you be effective in your current job. Be prepared to answer the question honestly and straightforward. If you feel that is not happening, then be clear and concise on what you need to make it happen.
Here is a suggestion. Instead of waiting to be asked this question by your manager, why not be proactive. Take this question and work out some talking points to discuss with your manager on how you see yourself being more effective at your current job. Request a meeting with your manager and discuss these points along with asking for their help in making both of you successful.
After all taking some initiative is never a bad thing.
We will discuss the next two questions: Are we helping your build a successful career? Are we helping you have a fulfilling life? In our next blog post.
