I'm about to start a new job

Do you have any advice on what to do in week 1/ month 1/ quarter 1, outside the usual on-boarding pieces, meeting the team and account management?

Learn every case study they have (if not part of the onboarding). This is why people buy whatever it is you have to sell. Look for the impact the purchase has had and the problem it solved. Mostly, listen a lot!

Find the top two performers in the org and become their shadow. Listen to their calls, ask to be Bcc'ed on their recap and follow-up emails, ask them questions. Pick their brain for every detail, no matter how small.

Figure out who the more successful people are on the team and pay attention to what they are doing different. If you can job shadow them do it and absorb all you can right away.

Do they send you to training? Make a folder on your desktop labelled "Resources" and have the important how to guides/resources there. Make friends with your teammates fast and they will show you the way.Β
