This session, led by Gye (Guy) Johnson, executive coach, certified facilitator, and organizational leadership expert, is an exercise in real talk. Johnson will discuss how EAs can best manage, support and handle their No. 1 source of headaches and stress on the job: their executive.
Laugh if you will but ask any EA and they’ll tell you the same. Managing someone else’s calendar, schedule and workload is a feat and a testament to the EA’s skills. Johnson has spent years in the federal government working with EAs and executives to help build a positive working relationship, helping EA’s avoid the ego pitfall and overcoming the executive who has lost perspective.
In this session you’ll learn:
- How to recognize and avoid the ego pitfall
- Ways to work with any executive in any industry
- Managing tricky relationships and hard-to-work with execs
