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.

Welcome to the third episode in my mini-series focused on POWER skills for indispensable assistants. This week the topic is Influencing Skills.

Being able to get things done needs cannot be reliant on de facto positional authority that comes via who you support.  Instead I coach and train EA's and Office Professionals to build their personal and professional reputation capital and develop strategies that allow them to effectively influence.
