Cathy Rong is Chief of Staff for the multi-hyphenate Questlove where she manages the artist’s day-to-day professional and personal life.
In this episode of The Leader Assistant Podcast, Cathy talks about building community, managing up, advocating for yourself, and the difference between an EA vs a Chief of Staff.
Be sure to check out my first conversation with Cathy in episode 117 of the podcast. In that episode, Cathy and I discussed implementing OKRs at your company, leading a team of assistants, onboarding team members, and more!
Leadership is an action, not a position!
