What keeps them up at night (biggest challenges they’re facing from a business perspective) and if they have an appetite for risk. What are their life goals personal/professional (this presents your interpersonal skills). Also ask what are their preferred style of working with account counterparts (txts vs emails - facetime vs webex)

How should I tell my team I am pregnant? Context: I found out at the very start of the case and have kept it under wraps despite having to mute some conference calls to vom, etc. We have two weeks left and I plan to be transparent with staffing and future cases going forward, as I’m past 12 weeks, so it’s likely they would find out. I like my team but I don’t have a super close personal relationship with them & this is my first case with this group. Email? Slack message? Zoom call?
