Ending A Conversation With A Senior Person
Our guidance on how to know when to end a conversation with a senior person.
We see a lot of advice about asking for informational interviews or talking to more senior people in your company about how to get ahead. We don’t disagree with the advice in general – the problem is it’s always given from the point of view of the person who wants something, and rarely takes into account what the senior person in the conversation might want or need.
If the conversation doesn’t go well, then you may not be able to use that relationship to get more information in the future. One of the tricks to having it go well, is knowing when to end it. In this cast, we’ll tell you how to know when.
