What do you do when the lead on the account team just plain gives up and you just know in your gut this account is at a pivotal crossroads?

What if you can't escalate it? What if you're too senior to escalate? How do you step in without your fellow leader not getting in your way? (Asking for a smaller/indie shop).

@ED1 I think it would depend on your relationship with them and, perhaps more importantly, the client. If you’re stuck with the fellow leader, and there’s no escalation point, you need to have a serious conversation and hash it out. Or step on in, if you’re well positioned to with the client, and apologize later (or don’t. 🔥)

I'll bet you 100 completely imaginary dollars that the account is not at a pivotal crossroads. Never forget, NOBODY outside that building cares about what you're working on at all. They just want to know if it's on sale. Try to keep some perspective. Make sure you have a few friends you dont work with. Watch some TV, go swimming or something. Get a little WLB happening.

If it’s truly a crossroads, and you have specific examples, escalate it if you like your gig :) otherwise, 🏃‍♀️
