It's always tough working with a new team but it is really important to find a moment to bond and become united in the execution of else are you going to get things done?

Tell people what you need from them and let them tell you what they do well, what they don't do well, what they don't know and what they need to learn...and try not to be surprised when they tell you their limitations. After have you own (or else you'd be doing the project yourself!)

I love your articles, very helpful!

Hi there, my name is Alexis and I am a writer for I am currently compiling a list of the Top 100 career-advice blogs and I would like to include your blog on the list.
I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions so I could include more info about you and yourself on the list. It would have the same format as this list, which I wrote last month (
If you could please send me an e-mail (and provide the title of your blog) so I could ask you the questions I would really appreciate it.
Thanks ahead of time for your help, if you have any other questions about me or our blog let me know and I will be happy to answer them

@Alexis: Yes, please e-mail the questions to

@PC: So glad to hear it, thanks!

@Karen: Good advice, although I think with a new team member it's more important to communicate expectations than to tell him what he's not doing well right off the bat. That conversation can happen after he fails to meet an expectation.
