Here’s an extract from a 5 part series called “Upping your game for Executive Assistants”. 

I know that some of you reading this are quite happy “pootling” along in your roles – you regularly cite that “no two days are the same” at work. You love the variety of tasks you’re involved in and the fact you’re the “go to” person in your organisation. Everything is “figure-out-able” and you’re the person with all the solutions yes? That’s great! It’s a nice comfy place to be isn’t it when you know what processes and procedures to employ, when you understand the quirks and preferences of the Executive(s) you support? And why change something if it’s working just fine as it is?

So, my question would be why not change it? Because if you’ve relaxed into

⚡️If you always do what you’ve always done you’ll always get what you’ve always got⚡️

you’re absolutely NOT upping your game. You need to instigate and drive change (I know – scary right!) and try things in a different way which may give you a BETTER result.
