60 Seconds with Our Founder: Executive Assistants Vs. Assistants

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.

Executive Assistants
● 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
