Working with executives

  1. 1. Working with Executives<br />Edwin B. R. Gbargaye<br />Reporter/Facilitator<br />MDM Student<br />Pangasinan State University<br />Professor: Jo B. Bitonio<br />HBO <br />
  2. 2. Having the power to put plans, actions, or laws into effect.<br />A senior manager in a business organization.<br />A group of people who run an organization or business. <br />CEO or President of a company<br />The branch of a government responsible for putting plans, actions, or laws into effect. <br />High level of politicians, elected officials<br />Executives Defined<br />
  3. 3. Managing your boss is one thing, working with executives can be quite another.<br />Because they have a tremendous amount of power they are accustomed to doing and saying whatever they want, making the a unique breed that must be handled with care. <br />
  4. 4. Guidelines in working with Executives<br />Don’t ever tell your executives that they “can’t” do anything.<br /> * Nothing riles an executive more than being told they can’t do something. <br /> * Select careful words to response to your boss even if he/she tries to do something unprofessional. <br />
  5. 5. Talk fast <br />* Executives are very busy people with tight schedules.<br /> * They are very bright people who can absorb information quickly, but be prepared for them to beat you with questions.<br />
  6. 6. Don’t expect specific questions<br /> * Executives brains are usually shifting from one big, important issue to the next….so their instructions are half clear.<br /> To successfully work with executives, you must possess a certain amount of psychic ability. <br />
  7. 7. Make it happen<br /> * Once they have issue some vague directive executives don’t want to hear about that issue again.<br />* Avoid going back for more information and instruction<br />
  8. 8. Take Care of the Details<br /> * Although you receive hazy instructions and are not permitted to return for clarification, you are nevertheless expected to produce a result that is perfect in every respect.<br /> Executives hate to deal with details themselves, but they expect flawless execution.<br />
  9. 9. Don’t take any abuse personally<br /> Executives can talk to people pretty much any way they want, after all, who can stop them?<br /> There are some rude executives who yells, insults, and abuse, but keep in mine that is not about you.<br /> You risk your job if you stand up for your rights although you may be right. <br />
  10. 10. Lost Your Ego<br /> * Executives were good enough to make it to the top –or very close to the top. They are paid high salaries, given expensive cars, and surrounded with fawning underlings.<br /> If you bring ego to the job you find yourself in a power struggle with an executive.<br />
  11. 11. Keep Yourself Confidence<br /> Ego is not helpful, but self- assurance is a must <br /> executives despise those who they see as potential staff on their way up so avoid mealy-mouth but display high level of self-confidence while respectfully acknowledging their authority. <br />
  12. 12. Hang on to Your Sense of Humor<br /> You will need it!<br /> Working with executives can be a challenge, but they are savvy people who can be excellent role models and mentors. <br /> The stress level may be high, but hanging around people who possess immense power is always interesting. <br />
