Course description

Effectively Utilize Your Executive Assistant

Learn how to set the expectations and the tone of this business relationship to make it successful.

Whether you are a member of senior leadership in a Fortune 500 company or the owner of a rapidly growing small business, there will come a time when you can’t get everything done by yourself. You will feel pulled in multiple directions; you will be spending more time taking care of duties and not enough time working with current clients and meeting new ones. A person who is overwhelmed cannot be as effective for the organization, the team, or themselves as a person who has support. If you have found yourself at the point of saying, “no more” or “is this worth it,” it might be time to bring on an executive assistant.

An executive assistant can help you move to the next step up the ladder through senior leadership or expanding your business to additional heights and success. It is you, the leader, that must set the expectations and the tone of this business relationship to make it successful. This presentation will help leaders determine the required tasks that must be completed, the character attributes, and the professional roles of their executive assistant. By thinking and working strategically with the executive assistant to determine goals and roles and then providing consistent follow-up and review, you will develop a scenario where you can shine in your role.
