  • Do anything and everything that you are given the chance to do.
  • Work really, really hard! It takes effort to be a Senior Executive.

  • Negotiate regular meetings to update your supervisors on your achievements and goals.
  • A good negotiator is very well researched, well-prepared, a good listener, creative thinker and able to keep the big picture in mind.
