Valerie Gagliano Leader Assistant Podcast

In this episode of The Leader Assistant Podcast, Valerie talks about managing an executive’s high volume of inbound requests, how to say “no” in a professional and kind way (“polite, concise, and professional”), working with an executive that values your contributions, the importance of a routine when working from home, and more.

As a bonus, Valerie took the opportunity to put the spotlight on me in this episode, and she asked me a few questions about how I become an EA, why I wrote a book, and more. 🙂

LEADERSHIP QUOTE

Leader Assistants possess the confidence to make considerate and informed decisions that lead to fruitful actions–in the absence of executive presence.

– Kristi D., EA in San Jose, CA (Quoted in Chapter 3 of The Leader Assistant)
