Asking The Right Questions To Build Strategic Relationships

Here is a great article from HBR about starting a new job or just trying to cultivate collaborative relationships:

During your first month in a company, take time to ask your boss these questions:

-How do you prefer to give and receive feedback and be kept informed?

-What are your most important goals for the year, and how do they fit into the company’s strategic objectives?

-What are the two to three most critical accomplishments I need to achieve within a year, and how will they be measured?

-What should I accomplish in the next six months?

-In what specific ways can I help you succeed?
