Skip onboarding altogether

Don’t give them specific to-do lists…

… or specific guidance

When you do give your new employee a specific action and due date, make sure you ignore the output that’s sent to you

When you don’t ignore the output, go waaaaaay overboard on micromanaging the content

Ask them to rebuild the team website, but not like the current team website, until you need it to look just like the current team website

Remember our field survey? Blow off the results.
