In this episode, I will share an easy process for wrapping up the current year's responsibilities while preparing for the new year in both your personal and professional lives. I hope you find something in this episode that helps you breathe a little easier, and stress a little less. See you inside the episode.
Every executive loves it when they can trust their assistants to handle the day to day minutiae, stay four steps ahead of them, make decisions on their behalf, can pivot on a dime while keeping their cool, and in other ways, appear to get things done as if she had superpowers and wore an invisible cape to the office every day. If you've ever had an executive assistant like this, then you also understand the pain of losing and having to replace them as well. If you haven't, buckle up, I will help you by giving you three to four major areas to focus on. See you inside the episode!
In this episode, I will share how I helped heal the relationship between a CTO client and her executive assistant. While each person, industry, and position may be different, the relationship between you and your support system is still the same that have a serious relationship. See you inside the episode.
Inside this episode, I will save you time, money and frustration by sharing the number one thing that you need to have before you consider hiring, or firing your next executive assistant. You want to make sure that you are hiring the right person for the job versus hiring quickly and then having to fire and start the hiring process all over again, right? I know you do. So keep listening, and let's see if you are honestly ready to hire an exceptional executive assistant or if you still have some personal work to do.
In this episode, I will share a few examples of what the right EA looks like. The first example will be when I once worked for the SVP of a sales division in a consumer packaged goods research firm. Knowing how to identify what he really needed by asking the right questions during my interview made him comfortable enough to open up and share his pain points with me. This opened the door for me to share with him how I could make those pain points go away. It worked. They called to offer me the job before I made it to the train to head home. I’ll even let you in on my secret weapon from the summer. How I managed to move mom into an assisted living facility, launch a new podcast and a new website while working a full time job, taking care of clients, giving international keynote speeches, being a board member, and a member of several committees all while holding down my full time job and maintaining my personal life and marriage without losing my mind.
Sometimes as busy women, we spin our wheels trying to do so many things in such a small window of time, that the bigger things that need our attention, get missed. Ever had a to do list a mile long and no clue what to do first, up into recently this was me. As a coach, do you try to help everybody instead of focusing your offers and messaging to the client base that you can do your best work with? As a mother? Are you running around trying to do everything you think your family will want you to do versus what would be most meaningful to them? As a lover, do you find yourself doing things for your significant other that does not yield the response you were looking for? And as a leader, do you find yourself delegating a task and then micromanaging your team members? If any of these sound like you keep listening. Whether you are majoring in the minors at home, at work or in love, it's time you stop doing so many minor activities, and focus on what matters most.
