Isn't it interesting how often people do assume failure, disinterest or apathy in getting what they need without even asking for it?
I happens too often.
People don't like to ask favors, try to find a new job or negotiate a good price/salary. They are either fearful, pessimistic or don't have the initiative to change their life.
When you're the VP in an organization, you should have constant access to C-level executives. Even as a middle management employee, you should have access to the CEO.
Whenever I end up in the horrendous world of phone banks with nowhere to go, I always end up writing the CEO.
All I did was try.
If you want to achieve something, if you want to get what you need, and you didn't ask the right people, you should never complain.
And, you better execute, once they agreed to your course of action.
