How best to support me

• Email is usually the best way to get in touch with me; however I do like to schedule phone time.
• I need clear and specific deadlines as I am usually working on many projects at the same time.
• I need time to think things through and talk about new ideas before the final product is produced.
• Be honest and straight forward with your thoughts and ideas. We will learn better together.
• I don’t always pick up on subtle cues. Be direct with me; don’t expect me to read between the lines. It is much quicker and easier if you just say what you have to say right up front.
