I’m so excited to launch the Leader Assistant Podcast!
To be honest, publishing episode one is very intimidating.
It’s one thing to write a blog post. It’s another to record your voice and share it – and all of it’s imperfections – with the world.
I know I’ll get better over time, but it’s really hard to listen to your own voice. If you don’t think so, try it yourself and get back to me.

Leader Assistant Podcast 16x9 episode 1

Anyway, I’m going for it partly because I enjoy audio editing and I love listening to podcasts as I wash dishes (I do dishes sometimes!), mow the lawn, and drive to work.

But the main reason I’m launching this podcast is I want to help as many assistants as I can.

I want to share lessons I’ve learned, but also have amazing guests (executives, EAs, thought leaders, and more) on the show so we can all learn from each other.

So here it goes!

Show Notes for Episode #1

I’m sure most of you have interacted with an assistant who was less than helpful, and we could chat about all the characteristics of a bad assistant, but I’m going to focus on the positive for this episode.

We’ll talk about 8 characteristics an assistant should have, if they want to be a leader in their role.

  1. Loyal
  2. Mind-Reader
  3. Organized
  4. Flexible
  5. Focused
  6. Others-Centered
  7. Admits Mistakes
  8. Friendly

“Good leaders must first become good servants.”

– Robert Greenleaf
