How to sound like an executive

  • Whenever someone throws out an idea, say “Interesting idea, but is it actionable?”
  • Whenever someone suggests changing a process, say “I like the concept, but how do we measure success?”
  • When your team starts a new project, say “We need to be clear what ‘Done’ means for this project”
    • You can also say “What are the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for this project?”

update, with some inspiration from PierG

  • On a new project: “What’s the ROI for that?”
  • “What synergies can we leverage?”
  • “this is nice, but where’s the WOW!?”
