New members offer an opportunity to grow and make positive changes.

Listen well

Welcome new ideas and put aside the “not invented here” mindset.

Be patient

Take time to explain current practices while acknowledging pain points and areas for improvement.

Remember

You were once a new hire searching for answers.
