‘Directing the new employee to a higher competence level, without becoming patronizing or impatient’

Setting of the workshop:

Instructing a newcomer to the business usually needs a special approach.


  • How to approach a new inexperienced staff member, who is excited or even insecure about doing the job?
  • You think: “How can he not get this?”
  • Someone does something wrong, even though you had asked her if you were clear, and she assured you that you were.

The daily routine of a more experienced professional is usually implicit and routine. The task is child’s play and therefore instructing a newcomer can e.g. end up in being impatient; using jargon; skip parts; overload with information and going too fast.
