Reaching out

  • Consider reaching out to someone with different 'touches', such as a phone call, email, written letter, or an appropriate gift. 
  • Pace your follow-ups. Every two weeks is a good starting place, and if they don't respond, try a monthly follow-up. 
  • Give them an 'out' if they need one.
  • Keep correspondence light and ongoing, instead of only reaching out when you need help.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

In some workplace situations, being persistent can be a sign of confidence and strength. 

No one is interested in an elaborate saga. Instead, ask a short, clear question on a subject in which the other person has expertise. They'll often be glad to help.

Effective persistence should always be based on providing incremental value.
