“Be careful not to break any unwritten rules of decorum or expected behavior at work for the next few days.
Take stock of any recent changes to how you and your co-workers interact and get things done. Do people work well together? Are any recent changes working? Just observe and evaluate without talking to people just yet. Do your best to figure out what is and isn’t working and where changes should possibly be made.
In your personal life, similarly take a good look at how things are getting done. How well have you been working with those you interact with? Figure out where changes should be made, but hold off on proposing any for the moment.
On and after Nov. 4th, go ahead and start asking people what they think. How do they think things are working? Ask for their thoughts and encourage open conversations.”
