In my decade plus of experience as an executive assistant, I’ve come up with several tricks to a good system for setting up meetings that help me be efficient, helpful to others, and ultimately take control of my executive’s calendar.

episode 20 leader assistant podcast

In this episode, I take a break from interviews (don’t worry, the next few episodes are some great interviews with great people!) to share the following three tips to help you schedule meetings more easily.

  1. Add meeting blocks to your executive’s calendar (More in depth post on Ideal Week Templates here).
  2. Don’t let your executive schedule meetings.
  3. Don’t ask the other party to send options.
