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.

Linchpin Assistants are 'superpowered' by what I describe as their Power Skills...soft skills on steroids!

Negotiating for mutual benefit is one of the 10 Power Skills that I train assistants to be able to rely on to help them be that little hinge that can swing big doors.

Resources discussed in this episode:

- Huthwaite whitepaper can be downloaded here

It might be February but it's still early enough in 2021 to spend some time reflecting and refocusing so that you can march forward purposefully into this still fresh year.

In this episode Liz shares some resources to help you do exactly that.

Firstly, Dr. Peter Fuda is a thought leader in the area of high performing teams and leadership. He has a brilliant blog and is someone to follow on LinkedIn. Find him at:

Liz also mentions the concept of S.M.A.A.R.T. goals (as opposed to just S.M.A.R.T.) The extra 'A' stands for Action-Oriented and this idea was one she picked up from listening to Michael Hyatt in Episode #66 – What SMART Goals Get Wrong. You can find it on Apple Podcasts here:

Finally, Liz mentions Pat Lencioni and his encouragement to be 'Hungry, Humble and Smart' as an employee.
