How to Approach Tough Conversations

Join EA to the CEO of Base, Natalie Turner, and EA to Partner at High Alpha Ventures, Hannah Bishop, in our virtually-moderated panel on how to have "tough conversations" with your executive and/or client.

Topics of discussion:

  • Expectation management: How to communicate the work you're performing.
  • You're not available 24/7: We'll discuss how to have the conversation around not being an around-the-clock resource while maintaining professionalism.
  • Acknowledging that the world is different now: How to navigate the unknown with working remotely.
  • You don't have to work late hours to prove your value: Examples of how to highlight your strengths.
