Executives happily and gratefully refer to their Assistants as right arms, eyes, ears, backbones, time-savers, culture carriers, and yes, glue. Clearly, Executive Assistants are important players in companies. When fully leveraged, they can also be a leader’s true executive business partner. A leader at the leader’s side.
The secret’s out. This role has been flying under the radar for a long time but not anymore. There’s a new normal in town and it’s here to stay. Forbes ran a feature about assistant training in May, 2019. https://bit.ly/2JSF90V
So how do Executive Assistants keep raising the bar to stay at the top of their games to keep pace with their uber successful and busy executive employers?
Here are 2 events to attend in either BOSTON or NEW YORK CITY that will do precisely that.
BOSTON, Wed Sept 18 Digital Productivity for Mac with Vickie Sokol Evans, MCT
Better digital productivity means eliminating bad habits, unessential work, missed effort, late hours, and unnecessary costs. Come to RedCape’s next Digital Productivity Workshop for Mac to learn how to focus on what matters most in your digital work life. Learn the shortcuts, tips, and tricks in Microsoft Office365 that you never even knew existed but always wish you had.
NEW YORK CITY, Thurs Oct 24, Building the Ultimate Executive / Assistant Partnership with hosts Bonnie Low-Kramen and Monique Helstrom.
For Executives and Assistants together at a Breakfast Summit with world-famous guest speakers – 2 CEOs with their EAs. Details; https://conta.cc/30qC8Ke
Leaders will learn how to maximize effectiveness, productivity, and profitability by fully utilizing their Assistant. Assistants will gain insights about taking their work to the next level for the benefit of their leader, themselves, and the companies they represent.
Note: If you don’t currently employ an assistant but are thinking about it, you should attend this event. (Jack Daly: “If you don’t have an assistant, you are an assistant.”)
Spoiler Alert: Like all healthy and strong partnerships, the one between leaders and assistants takes time, energy, and work. The ROI can be beyond expectations and change lives. You’re worth it.
