I think anybody who tries to speak to decision makers is increasingly bound to come up against gatekeepers. Their job is to stop people like you speaking to their boss! Bit of a bummer really.
The question is how can you get round them and is there anything else you can do to perhaps turn them from foe into friend?
(Clue: there is)
Thanks Mike, great advice as always. Its all about treating people in a manner you would want to be treated yourself.
Thanks John. I think you’re so right. Simple courtesy and taking the time to be nice you people makes all the difference.
Good basic blog message that is so often forgotten by even the best.
I have to say John, whilst I’m never rude with gatekeepers (or anyone else I do hope!), sometimes I don’t give people the time they deserve. Good reminder for all of us. Thanks 🙂
