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.

In Part 2 of my conversation with Jo Miller we talk about the FIVE leadership types that Jo has identified and the traits of each. Jo does some myth busting around the perception that you need to be a manager of people to be a leader.

We focus on HOW you can amplify your accomplishments and Jo takes me through the ways she recommends you can put this into action. 

Finally we discuss the trap that you fall into when you make yourself indispensable for doing work that downplays your potential.

In Part 1 we explore: 

- Jo’s experience navigating her own career climbing frame (the topic of last weeks episode)

- We explore why and how you can tap into your leadership super power.

- Jo explains the five leadership types that she outlines in her book and takes us through an exercise you can do to identify your leadership strengths. 

- Jo also talks about the one thing she recommends that we all do and what gets in the way of us actually doing that one thing.

I hope you enjoy Part 1 of our conversation and can’t wait to bring you Part 2 next week.

A solo episode discussing why it's so vital that regardless of how much you love you job you must always prioritise your love for yourself above it. 

That can be tricky when you're anxious and stressed about your job security but helping you see that you have options is what I'm all about.

Self care anytime is important because we are human beings NOT human doings but in 2020 it's gone beyond burnout for most of us and we are now just soldiering on despite our mental fatigue and sense of overwhelm. 

There is no magic bullet but what we can do is introduce small changes that will help you fire up your own inner flame.
