At a moment that calls for leadership, respond thus:
Happy to support you guys, just let me know…
Looking forward to working with you on this.
Many thanks for the guidance …greatly appreciate it and will adjust the message accordingly!
I have a conflict meeting on that date. Let me know.
Not being seen is simple, really. Send a message expanding upon your enthusiasm for the project with a dash of “just let me know,” and you’re off the hook. Be sure to make the victory party and share some high fives.
