When someone new joins your team, we recommend you communicate early about your key priorities. One of those must be communication.

When a new direct joins your team, don't miss the opportunity to communicate your key values to them. Once the first month passes, they'll be down in the minutiae of their work, and less open to big picture guidance.

In earlier guidance we recommended managers have a "First Meeting" with their new team member. We encouraged you to recommend to your directs some always applicable guidance: be honest, be kind, and achieve results. We also recommended that you make this meeting the first of several weekly meetings, where you could regularly communicate about important issues. This guidance continues our recommendations.
