    As an assistant, one of your highest priorities is to manage your executive's most valuable asset – their time. If you look at your role through this lens, then you'll stop viewing "calendar management" as an uninteresting part of your job.

In this chapter, I cover managing your executive's calendar before it manages you, setting up and maintaining the "Ideal Week" tactic, and auditing your executive's time.

GGornall ,

Ep. 178 did it for me.

I’ve been listening to this podcast for the better half of the year now… I began searching for resources that could support a more positive attitude around the career I found myself in as an EA. From the practical applications and tips to the hosts genuine passion for the role, I’ve discovered an incredible world I never knew was available to me and have since made strides in my interview and negotiating skills, title, and business acumen. Episode 178 was particularly impactful for me regarding our importance to business strategy and how our role truly functions under proper leadership. I can’t wait to see what inspiring guest comes on next!

The best resource an EA can use!!

I have been listening for about a year. This is the best resource an EA can have in their arsenal. I just finished episode #180. The Good, The Bad, The Ugly. This was an amazing episode!!! I’ve been an Assistant for 25 years. I’ve certainly had my fair share of amazing executives as well as the not so great leaders. This episode took me back, remember the good and the bad times. The lesson learned is spot-on with what Jeremy reaffirmed in this episode. You are a valued member of the team, and you are a valuable human being. Everyone deserves to be valued and happy in their work environment. If you are not, it is time to give your skills to an organization and executive who will treat you with respect.
