Encouraging Executive Assistants to rethink the career ladder and embrace a multi-directional approach
A solo episode ruminating on my own experience thinking of my career as a ladder and struggling at times to feel that I had options and that there were benefits to gain from making a lateral, diagonal or even a backwards move.
These days I prefer to think of my career as climbing a spider frame that you’d find in a playground. Up, down, lateral and diagonal moves are all not just possible but encouraged.
Embracing the mindset that every move affords you opportunities to learn and grow and that there is a view to be had from each spot on that frame….not just the top!

I work with executive assistants and administrative assistants to equip them with the skills and confidence they need to influence more effectively and demonstrate the leadership and interpersonal skills to make them a 'linchpin' to their boss and organisation.
