There’s an interesting phenomenon that happens after I match an Executive Assistant with a CEO.
A Leader will FINALLY have help…and then they don’t delegate anything.
After spending hours, months or years WISHING they had support, the moment they have that person available…leaders hold onto work with a tight fist.
If this sounds like you, you’re not alone.
Today we are going to unpack the reasons you are NOT delegating work. Then, I’m going to share some tips to make delegation and onboarding your EA more successful.
In today’s episode you’ll hear:
- The 5 reasons leaders DON’T delegate and WHY these roadblocks work against you in the long-run
- How mentorship during the first 100 days can lay a foundation for long-term success.
- The 2 ways to define what success looks like for your EA
- The importance of transparency to reduce uncertainty
- Why I advocate for encouraging your EA to own their role — and outcomes — not tasks
