New Directs need guidance on how to start on the right foot. We recommend a series of meetings in their first weeks, one of which makes clear: you have to create and maintain trusting relationships within the organization to succeed.

One of those is the importance of relationships with others. Like it or not, not everything gets done through the chain of command - it takes "friends" in the company to get a lot of stuff done. Here's how to get off on the right foot.
