You only get one chance to make a first impression, so there is a lot riding on your first 90 days at the new job. Most company onboarding processes focus on logistics, not organizational dynamics or your success, making the experience even more intimidating. As a result, many people lack clarity and fail to make a high impact early on.


Take control of your own onboarding success with a confidential, customized coaching program. VOCA’s Ascend program will give you confidence in your new role and equip you to make an immediate impact that sets you up for long-term success. 

Your long-term success in a new job is far more dependent than you think on how you begin. VOCA’s customized Ascend coaching program will help you crush your first 90 days on your new job by:

Clarifying your role, sorting through confusion, and identifying your most important initial goals and contributions

Establishing healthy dynamics and communication between you and your new supervisor and team members

Setting you up to skillfully navigate the politics and people problems in your new workplace
