Executive Assistants and Assistants are very different roles.
Understanding the difference between the two will help you choose which one is best for your needs.
● Develop a relationship with you and stay intuitive to your needs
● Learn about you and the way you work to help you create processes, increase productivity, and improve efficiency
● Listen for the unspoken and think about the total outcome
● Add value by taking on your administrative needs which gives you the time to focus on core roles
● Free up your time to work on your business instead of in your business
● Master their craft but always look to learn more in a constantly evolving environment
● Have experience and have built their careers around being an Executive Assistant
● Serve leaders and decision makers best
● Often need to be directed
● Work best from recurring lists
● Usually follow the task exactly as directed
● Focus on completing the task over possible spin off outcomes
● Follow a process instead of creating them
● May have been Assistants in the beginning of their career but never grew to be an Executive Assistant
● Don’t invest the time into developing a relationship with you
● Don’t work best with one time projects or on-demand tasks
