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.

Part Two of my interview with Marco where we continue our conversation around the self-directed learning and development that Marco has initiated in order to build his capability, confidence and value as an Executive Assistant.

Extending himself as an EA has also involved stepping into the limelight on another podcast, The Future Assistant, hosted by Diana Brandl. You can find the episode here.

Marco Macente is an Italian office professional who has been working as an Executive Assistant for ten years. He is based in Milan and has studied in the United Kingdom where he undertook a Masters in Corporate Communications in London.

Marco supports senior managers within the Oncology unit of Bayer Pharmaceuticals and in this episode shares how he is fulfilling the role of EA as an Executive Business Partner.

Marco is a wonderful personification of what I mean when I describe someone who is a Linchpin Assistant. You will hear in this interview how he is:

- Knowing: Marco invests time in knowing himself, his manager/s, his organisation, his job and his Power Skills

- Empowered: How Marco uses his Power Skills to propel him into that Linchpin Assistant space

- Strategic: What he does to ensure he is able to see around corners and stay one step ahead of his manager

- Effective: The skills and competencies he has developed that enable him to be more than efficient but truly effective.
