Ryan Holiday (ugh) on the "briefcase" technique---coming into interviews/meeting powerful people/etc with a specific proposal, not just "uh what do you want from me."

HN post was mostly people whining about how this doesn't apply to software interviews (true ish). But I think for software management it'd be a strong approach. Basically how I hold my upward 1:1s lately---specific proposals, asking who to talk to about a given topic.

Also relation to dating approaches. Better to put yourself out there, be bold. Rejection means it was already a bad fit, but good fit is more likely to land rather than become a missed opportunity.

Really interesting series of stories of people showing up to interviews as active participants, rather than interviewees waiting to answer questions.

I really like this technique a lot.
