Three Ways Executive Assistants Can Build RespectJune 15, 2020
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 myeacareer.com
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”.

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.
