How to Manage Work place Take Over
Work place take over occurs all the time. In the field of health care as in other businesses, buy-outs may be at any time. And depending on how it is handled, a new company taking over should not necessarily mean the worst outcome.
Five Tips in handling new company buy outs
- Be Informed: Getting information is the first critical steps towards knowing what to expect from the new company. Knowledge is indeed power and the more knowledge you are armed with, the better able you are to face whatever challenges that might come your way and how to react to it.
Do your own independent research on the new company- find out from reputable sources what you need to know.
2. Listen: Keep your ears open. Keep abreast of the situation by paying attention to what is going on around you. Remember also to listen more than you talk.
3. Network: Your new employers taking over is a chance for you to network. Don’t overdo it but be sure to network politely
4. Ask Questions: When ever the opportunity arises, ask questions. Find out what direction the new employers are seeking to take. This is important to know because it helps you determine, if that direction is one that you are willing to take or not.
Work place take over does not have to be a bad thing- it can either be a stepping stone for you or the added push that you needed to get your career on a different track.
You are boss of your career and as such it depends on you to steer yourself right. Don’t leave that control in the hands of another person.
