Quick Tip: Fake It Till You Make It

by | Apr 16, 2018 | Career Wellbeing

New to Fairview? Those first few weeks or months, you may feel lost. Here are some tips for building your confidence in your new role!

  • Learn the Lingo. Confused by acronyms? Don’t be afraid to ask what they mean and keep a list until you catch on.
  • Don’t Guess. You may feel embarrassed that you don’t know the answer to a question. But don’t try to guess – admit you don’t know and then work to track down the information.
  • Ask for Feedback. Check in with your leader regularly. We tend to judge ourselves harshly so it can be difficult to see when and where we’ve made progress.
  • Give Yourself Time. We’ve all been new at some point, so everyone understands what you’re going through. Before you know it, you’ll be the one people come to for answers!
