You only have 90 days to get your first promotion

New job Congratulations!  You just landed that great new job and you’re sitting in the catbird seat, right? 


A lot depends on what you do now and in the next 90 days.

For many folks, getting a new job means it’s time for a break.  After all, the company will probably cut you some slack for at least 30 days, right? That means you have 30 days (at least) to breathe, right?

Not so fast.

If you take that attitude, you may as well begin looking for your next company now because your career (at that company at least) is already over.  Your first 90 days can set the tone for how you are received and/or perceived for quite a while at your new company.  It can even determine your next promotion.

If you go in the door as if your impact on the company in the first 90 days determined whether or not you would be the CEO 10 years from now (because it might), you’ll not only make an immediate impact on the organization and make your boss look brilliant, you’ll set wheels in motion that you cannot even imagine for your future success.

You were born to be great.

YES, you can!
