James Sobczak

James is a kind, articulate, wise executive assistant and I’m so thrilled to share our conversation! James talks about being a male assistant in a female-dominated profession, how he’s prioritized professional development and growth opportunities, and how we should see our role as a career, not just a stepping stone.

LEADERSHIP QUOTE

Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.

– Norman Schwarzkopf (Former U.S. Army General)
