133. Why Hope Is Not A StrategyThursday, Mar 25, 2021
The importance of self advocacy for you as a Linchpin Assistant
I didn’t invent the phrase ‘hope is not a strategy’ but I love it and I think it’s particularly relevant for assistants who find themselves trapped in a hope-based strategy when it comes to asking for what they want and what they need AND asking for what their boss wants and needs.
