Best Practices: Christy Lewis

Light bulbI reach out to a new prospect on all levels, including phone, email, Linked In, etc.  Understanding that everyone works differently and has different preferences of how they like to communicate is key.  This ensures a higher response rate based on the fact that they will most likely respond to one method and then you also become aware of their preferred method of contact.

Best Practices: Arvid Povilaitis

Light bulbI have a number of direct reports throughout the country.  Everyone is busy with their day-to-day activities managing issues as they arise. In an effort to stay focused on our goals and strategic in our thinking, I have a permanent time slot set aside with each person each week that is “sacred.”  It sets aside a time to discuss anything we need to, as well as to catch up on the status of ongoing projects.  These meetings are sometimes very brief, and sometimes quite lengthy, as warranted.

Inform your supervisor what you’re planning to do, when you’re going to get it done and then do it.  No surprises.
