Leaders often ask us why offboarding matters—after all, former employees are no longer working with your team; why should their experience be…

And while your initial welcome speech can serve as a good introduction to the team at large, it’s essential to connect on a more personal, individual level. Organizational design pioneer Ed Schein called this “personizing,” which he described as “the process of getting from that role-based transaction to this more personal relationship…get[ting] to know each other in the work context.” Of course, you won’t achieve this all in one meeting.…
