The Assistant’s List is home to unapologetically forward-thinking assistants who passionately believe in innovative learning and growth centered development.
The role of assistant has changed drastically over the past ten years and the changes emerging over the next decade are likely to border on the extreme.
Technology and automation will continue to erode what once defined our traditional duties.
Counterintuitively, the role isn’t shrinking, it’s expanding. The defining characteristics of what it means to be Executive Assistant and the core competencies of how we perform our jobs are being fundamentally reformulated.
Let’s get real, development in our roles can sometimes be anemic. There are a host of articles, blogs, and courses that tell you WHAT to do but fail to offer practical actions for HOW to do it in the real world.
This blog is a guide to facilitate your development and prepare you for the coming transformation. Here you’ll get equipped with the tools, strategies, and techniques that will raise your level and transform you into an assistant for the New Era.
Our roles will only be sustainable if we proactively level up, take ownership of our development, and advocate for our own growth.
