I am excited but nervous! I feel like the first day of school. I have an outfit picked out, my lunch ready, doing last minute errands, wrote half my introduction letter so far, and I have an ice breaker ready for the first staff meeting (that isn't set up yet). I find all kinds of resources for first time managers. What I can't seem to find is good resources for adults with developmental delays, vocational training support for mod/severe special needs, or geriatric information. (The last one is more available than the other ones mentioned). I know I will first be going through basic training (first aid, etc) and be given some special regulations I have to memorize, but beyond that...I'm not sure what to do next. My plan is the following: -Ask for email addresses for myself and those on my team. -Ask where organization mailboxes are (in house and outgoing). -Ask for job descriptions of those on my team and possibly resume/applications. -Find out who the scheduler is and set up a staff meeting and individual meetings. -Ask what support is needed to oversee the move to the new building. -Start asking tons of questions so I can learn the organization, the jobs on my teams, and think through any preliminary plans. Any other suggestions? I made it easy for the first day lunch. It may not be the healthiest but it is a pack and go--guacamole/pick de gallo with chips. I will have to learn how to brown bag it. I only have a 30 minute lunch but unlike school, I won't have a cafeteria. Rule for tomorrow--fake it until I make it and don't over chatter.
