I was an EA for more than 20 years and trust me, I have seen it all — the good, the bad, and the crazy. An EA is more than an “assistant”; they are a trusted partner. An EA can offer skills beyond administrative tasks, and once a leader recognizes that, the real work can begin.

The relationship between a CEO and an EA are unique. At PVA we mentor each to ensure they are successful, so you do not have to do it alone.

Cultivating this relationship isn’t always easy. In this episode, I am going to share the 10 mistakes leaders make with their EAs every day, so that you can avoid them with your own EA.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • The good, the bad, and the crazy from my days as an EA
  • The 10 mistakes leaders make with their EAs every day
  • The Momentum Method for aligning your people, projects, and processes to sustain momentum
