Being Indispensable

Being Indispensable is a podcast for Executive Assistants. It's about the mindset shift required to form a true partnership with your executive but it's also about never losing sight of the fact that we are human beings not human doings and we need to be kind to ourselves and focus on progress over perfection. Join Liz as she explores the skills and leadership development required to build a true partnership with your executive.

The first episode in a series of episodes I'm doing on what I call Essential POWER Skills for Indispensable Assistants. Otherwise (and inadequately) described as 'soft' skills, these are the skills that differentiate you from the pack. 

You can be functionally competent and great at the bread and butter aspects of your role (essential in my opinion). You can be totally across the strategic implications of things going on in the sphere of your manager and business unit. But if you are not developing and improving your POWER skills you will not be delivering the value and effectiveness that will help to catapult your manager to their next level of effectiveness and capability. 

As the enabler of your manager, demonstrating and developing these POWER skills is vital and will position you as an Indispensable Assistant.
