With a new academic year beginning, we have many new staff members joining our UTSA family. As they become integrated and learn more about their roles, we need to ask ourselves how we can contribute to their success as a member of our team.
Hopefully we are guiding them through their first-time experiences or meetings, allowing them to develop thoughts and feelings that assist them in finding their place within their office, unit or within Student Affairs.
Through the Student Affairs Orientation, True Colors and Four C’s, all of our new family members will be bonding and discussing what they “bring to the table”. It is important to create an atmosphere where they can bring these conversations back to the office and share. Keep in mind that many new staff members feel a new sense of pride, purpose and excitement about learning and sharing.
The eagerness of new staff members can be a catalyst to excitement through the whole office and it’s something we should all use to our advantage!
Here are some ways to utilize the Four C’s with new staff members:
