Executives: If you don’t appreciate the value of a top-notch assistant, you’re missing out! Read ‘The CEO’s Secret Weapon’ by Jan Jones. ~ Dr. Ken Blanchard, Leadership Consultant, Author, “The One Minute Manager”

Your Executive Assistant Is Your Secret Weapon

All over the world, CEOs, entrepreneurs, managers are looking for a unique business advantage - the one idea, strategy, or tactic that will give them an advantage over their competitors. Yet how many executives are taking full advantage of the biggest asset they have, one that can increase their productivity and their competitive advantage?

If you are an executive with an executive assistant, your Secret Weapon is right under your nose. Your assistant is an immense resource who frees up your time, gets minutiae off your desk, stays one step ahead of you and keeps anything and everything that is a hindrance to your productivity away from you. They understand your needs, what makes you tick, how you prefer things done. They understand that the role of the executive assistant is to give back time to the executive.

This is a frank, spontaneous, unedited, late-night interview response to a question I was asked by Secretary.it magazine about “How does an assistant even begin to support someone like Tony Robbins. What does it take?”

My response is about the role of the executive assistant supporting Tony Robbins. It is NOT a video about Tony Robbins per se.

Beyond skills, it takes an enterprising mindset and a passionate heart to support someone like Tony Robbins. 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.
