Working with Executives

  1. 1. Edwin B. R. Gbargaye Reporter/Facilitator MDM StudentPangasinan State University Professor: Jo B. Bitonio HBO
  2. 2.  Having the power to put plans, actions, or laws into effect. A senior manager in a business organization. A group of people who run an organization or business. CEO or President of a company The branch of a government responsible for putting plans, actions, or laws into effect. High level of politicians, elected officials
  3. 3.  Managing your boss is one thing, working with executives can be quite another. 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.
  4. 4. Don’t ever tell your executives that they “can’t” do anything.* Nothing riles an executive more than being told they can’t do something. * Select careful words to response to your boss even if he/she tries to do something unprofessional.
  5. 5.  Talk fast* Executives are very busy people with tight schedules. * They are very bright people who can absorb information quickly, but be prepared for them to beat you with questions.
  6. 6. Don’t expect specific questions* Executives brains are usually shifting from one big, important issue to the next….so their instructions are half clear. To successfully work with executives, you must possess a certain amount of psychic ability.
  7. 7.  Make it happen * Once they have issue some vague directive executives don’t want to hear about that issue again.* Avoid going back for more information and instruction
  8. 8. Take Care of the Details* 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. Executives hate to deal with details themselves, but they expect flawless execution.
  9. 9.  Don’t take any abuse personally Executives can talk to people pretty much any way they want, after all, who can stop them? There are some rude executives who yells, insults, and abuse, but keep in mine that is not about you. You risk your job if you stand up for your rights although you may be right.
  10. 10. Lost Your Ego* 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. If you bring ego to the job you find yourself in a power struggle with an executive.
  11. 11.  Keep Yourself Confidence Ego is not helpful, but self- assurance is a must 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.
  12. 12.  Hang on to Your Sense of Humor You will need it! Working with executives can be a challenge, but they are savvy people who can be excellent role models and mentors. The stress level may be high, but hanging around people who possess immense power is always interesting.
