Ten Expectations of Executive Audiences

The Connecting with Executives materials and activities are mindful of the expectations shared below.


While preparing the Connecting with Executives program we spoke with senior executives from a number of organizations varying in size, geography, industry, and type (i.e. corporate, nonprofit, education, faith-based).  Below we have summarized ten requests which we heard consistently as we explored the needs and expectations of executive audiences.  

We believe employees at all levels who honor these requests, are better positioned to establish or validate their credibility and the credibility of their information.  They are more likely to influence an executive audience than those who ignore these requests.
