When working with C-Suite executives, there are a few key habits that can help you build strong working relationships and effectively communicate your ideas:

  1. Be prepared: Make sure you have thoroughly researched and thought through your ideas before presenting them to C-Suite executives. This will help you make a strong case and answer any questions they may have.
  2. Be concise: Executives are busy and often have limited time, so it's important to be clear and concise when communicating with them. Avoid using jargon or unnecessarily complex language, and get to the point quickly.
  3. Be respectful: Treat leadership with respect and professionalism at all times. This means being polite, listening to their feedback and concerns, and addressing any issues in a constructive manner.
  4. Be proactive: Executives appreciate employees who are proactive and take initiative. This is especially important for startups. So if you see an opportunity to improve a process or solve a problem, don't be afraid to bring it to their attention and offer solutions.
  5. Be adaptable: C-Suite executives often have to make quick decisions and adapt to changing circumstances. Show that you are adaptable and able to handle change by being flexible and open to new ideas.

By adopting these habits, you will set up yourself for success in every company :)
