Training young professionals in this hybrid era
Young employees have long looked to their managers for guidance, frequently through watching them exhibit what organizational psychologists refer to as executive presence. Even though so much work is done digitally these days, there are still methods to offer these learning experiences. Managers can position young professionals for long-term career success if they do it well and frequently.
As a manager, your employees will have a better experience if you invest in them, and this creates a positive feedback loop. They are more inclined to stay, perform, and be involved the better their experience is. Managers must interact with purpose in order to do this. However, you must first set the proper tone, especially for virtual meetings, which can be uncomfortable and impersonal.
After meetings, especially those where there was a presentation or a client present, conduct a post-mortem with young employees. Inquire about their impressions of the presentation, the presenter’s successes and failures, and the lessons they took away. Ask if they have any questions even though it might seem clear.
Define expectations for the new employee as well. When they do participate, they should observe how business is done and then reassemble after the meeting to discuss what they observed. Invite the new recruit to participate as they gain experience and, as necessary, give them greater responsibilities.
Setting a clear aim should be your top priority if you want new hires to feel confident leading meetings. The new hire will observe the first five meetings. They will begin by leading for half of the meeting on their sixth time before progressing to overall responsibility. Making it easy for new hires to question leaders is a key component of developing emotional intelligence. When senior executives from a corporation attend departmental meetings, they invite inquiries.
Showing empathy by managers has a big impact. Employees will feel heard, and it sets an example for optimal practices. Additionally, it provides a chance to include those who don’t participate too. Define expectations for the new employee as well. When they do participate, they watch how business is done and reassemble after the meeting to discuss what they saw. Invite the new member to engage as they gain experience and, as necessary, give them greater responsibilities.
What’s even more valuable is knowing what someone is doing in their personal life. “I know it’s been summer vacation and having the kids around while you work must be difficult,” a manager could respond to his empoyee’s concerns. If a leader knows this it says, ‘I see you,’ and that goes a long way.
