Diana Faz is a seasoned, top level assistant with 15+ years of experience, a global EA mentor and advocate, and an all-around amazing person.
Diana opens up about her experience with burnout during the pandemic, and also shares practical tips on managing email, networking, leading a team of admins, and anticipating your executive’s needs. Enjoy our conversation!
Note: The quote Diana references at the end of the episode was in Simon Sinek’s book Leaders Eat Last, but the quote was not attributed to Simon. It was in the foreword written by George J. Flynn, retired Lieutenant General, US Marines, and here it is again in case you missed it:
“Great leaders truly care about those they are privileged to lead and understand that the true cost of leadership privilege comes at the expense of self-interest.”
Raising the bar requires all of us looking in the mirror and challenging ourselves to commit to a plan for our ongoing development and to bring our best to each day. I am holding myself to this standard –and expect and ask for you to do the same.
– Larry Fink
