Do you really need an executive assistant? If you're reading this book, the answer is most likely a resounding 'Yes!'

Executives often fail to capitalize on the immense resource sitting right outside their office in the person of an exceptional executive assistant. That solutions-oriented individual who adds value by enhancing the executive's productivity, elevating their performance and functioning as their indispensable business partner and 'right arm.'

As you read this book, you will discover the genesis of the formidable talents that are the hallmark of exceptional assistants, and understand the value they can bring to you. Throughout the book you will hear from dozens of executives and close to one hundred assistants, who gave the author a candid look into their day-to-day activities, the expectations and demands on the executive-assistant relationship, as well as their advice for how executives and assistants can work successfully and productively together. As you read about these assistants, you will begin to understand why you should not settle for anything less than a stellar assistant who knows what you need and how to give it to you, who will smooth out your life and make your workday a rewarding experience.

If you are an executive assistant looking to raise the bar on your performance, this video is for you. If you are an executive who knows intrinsically that you can be getting much higher levels of support from your assistant, this video is for you.
