Goal setting can be intimidating. Will you set goals you can’t reach? Will you set goals that are too easy and show your executive you’re not ambitious enough? What if your stretch goals distract you from getting your job done?
In this episode, I share an excerpt from my audiobook, The Leader Assistant: Four Pillars of a Confident, Game-Changing Assistant, where my friend Jillian Hufnagel wrote about goal setting for executive assistants and administrative professionals.
