Partners - what advice do you have for competing project requests from senior leadership? I have 3 PPDs asking me to join them for my next gig and they refuse to hash it out between them.

Will give you my two cents... look at the opportunities. See which one matches your interests, your goals, and your life balance needs. Once you are clear on the right project for you, start with that partner and tell them you are most interested in his or her project but would really appreciate help in not burning bridges with the other partners. Then I would communicate with the other two partners, explaining the rationale of your decision in the context of the three areas I mentioned. They should all respect this as you managing your career.

It obviously feels great to be wanted, by trying not to burn any bridges either. Any insights would be much appreciated!

Thanks P1. I followed a similar approach, except informing the other two partners the rationale for my decision. It isn’t too late. I like the idea of closing the loop with the them. Appreciate the advice.
