The Basics

I am looking forward to training a new employee who “ticks all the boxes” as we Aussies say.  One thing he lacks, though, is experience in nearly all of the actual duties of the job.

That was me some 20 years ago when I first started working at a school district.  I had to learn everything from scratch – and fast.  I was grateful for the opportunity as well as the confidence shown in me by the guy who hired me.  My eager acceptance of the position also revealed a complete lack of awareness of just how much I needed to learn.  At that time I had almost finished my MBA.  I delayed completion for two years due to the unanticipated demands of the new job.

For all those out there who find themselves in a similar situation I have created a tab on the blog that references posts on “the basics”.
