Three Ways Executive Assistants Can Build Respect June 15, 2020

12mins 46secs

I prescribe to the view that respect cannot be demanded, it must be earned. Thinking that you “deserve” respect is a path to unhappiness and frustration. Instead, I recommend taking a proactive approach to earning respect that is based on the elements of my Knowing Assistant Framework:

– Knowing yourself

– Knowing your Power Skills

– Knowing your job

– Knowing your boss

– Knowing your organisation

You can read more about the Knowing Assistant Framework on my website

In this episode I share 3 strategies for building respect that I’ve read about in a brilliant book by Peggy Vasquez “Not Just An Admin”. I can highly recommend picking up a copy of this excellent personal development resource.

I also mention Lois P. Frankel’s book “Nice Girls Still Don’t Get The Corner Office”.
