A few years back I started surveying business leaders to get their perspective on the role of the EA and how their EA enabled their leadership and effectiveness. The results continue to be interesting.

In this episode I share a couple of the insights. Interestingly whilst leaders SAY they want their EA to demonstrate leadership traits, significantly less respondents agreed with statements that bear out what it LOOKS like for an assistant to be treated as part of the leadership team. This disconnect is something I know many of you will not be surprised by.

To share this survey with your business leader go to:

I would love to get more responses to add to my research.

The survey incorporates ideas from Adam Fidler's EA Manifesto which you can read here:

I interviewed Adam for the podcast back in 2017 (Episode 26 and Episode 27)

In today's episode I also mentioned the book Atomic Habits by James Clear, Managing Up by Mary Abbajay and Attention Management by Maura Thomas.
