Your executive assistants (EAs) are the unsung heroes of your organization. They keep the wheels turning, anticipate needs, and provide invaluable support to your key players. But like any high performer, even your best EAs have room to grow. This is where strategic coaching comes in, not to fix problems, but to unlock hidden potential and create a ripple effect of positive change throughout your team.
From Star Individual to Team Leader:
Let’s imagine one of your exceptional EAs – dedicated, helpful, and a master of getting things done. While they excel in many areas, their strong “get-it-done” attitude can sometimes create unintended consequences. Their assertiveness, while meant to help, can come across as overstepping boundaries. Additionally, the dynamic within their close-knit team of three might lead to unintentional silos and exclusionary behavior.

By providing them with the tools and resources they need to thrive, you reap the rewards of a more efficient, engaged, and ultimately, successful team.
Remember, your best assistants are not just cogs in the machine, they are the catalysts for growth and positive change.
