This episode is special because my friend Meagan Strout (CEO of Tack Advisors – the leading provider of management consulting and recruitment for administrative professionals) agreed to share the recording of one of their recent webinars called “Admin Leader in Action!”
Meagan hosts an engaging conversation with Tack Advisors’ Executive Business Partner, Alexa Gundermann and Alissa Stearman, Executive Business Partner to the CEO and Co-Founders of sweetgreen.
Alissa and Alexa discuss the dos and don’ts of developing a strong administrative team to support the co-founders and c-suite executives of a unicorn start-up. Alissa and Alexa worked in tandem supporting the sweetgreen founders and will share their insight into how to work cohesively to keep executives and admins on track.
Thank you Meagan and the Tack Advisors team for sharing this amazing conversation with the Leader Assistant Community!
