A few weeks ago, I was back on the GovLove podcast, joining ELGL Executive Director Kirsten Wyatt. This time, we discussed effective onboarding practices. You can find my episode here or look up GovLove on your favorite podcast app. This episode is number 458.
This episode was great fun. Kirsten and I opened things up by talking about time travel and having coffee with fictional characters. Then we got down to business. While the Onboarding Part 1, Onboarding Part 2, and Onboarding Schedule Example posts cover most of the content from the episode, I still encourage you to give it a listen. You get to hear Kirsten's opinion throughout, and we get to go into greater detail.
ELGL (elgl.org), or Engaging Local Government Leaders, describes itself as an "accidental professional organization" that began as a small dinner group. Today, ELGL has over 4,800 members. The organization provides content for government workers through a wide variety of channels: the GovLove podcast, webinars, daily articles on their website, learning cohorts and conferences.
