EA Book Club: ‘The Leader Assistant’ by Jeremy Burrows
April 12 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Do you love books? Are you often looking for people to discuss professional development books with? Lots of EAs love to read, but it can be hard to find someone to discuss the book you’re reading — join us for an EA Professional Development book club! We meet monthly via zoom (3rd Tuesday of the month) and discuss our book pick of the month while sharing best practices and sometimes the authors join us! It’s also a great opportunity to meet new EAs, make new friends, and up-level your EA career.
This month, Jeremy Burrows will be joining us for a live Q&A!
About March’s book
As an assistant, you constantly face obstacles that hold you back from accomplishing your career goals. Whether it’s a job change, shifting deadlines, a micromanaging executive, a toxic co-worker, a high-pressure project, or an intense negotiation with a vendor, the administrative profession is not for the faint of heart. If you’re looking to maintain the status quo and be “just an assistant,” this book is not for you. But, if you want the confidence and ability to conquer the challenges that most try to avoid, then you’re in the right place. The Leader Assistant outlines four pillars-embody the characteristics, employ the tactics, engage in relationships, and exercise self-care-that will help you rediscover your passion for the profession and become a confident, future-proof, game-changing Leader Assistant. If you neglect even one pillar, you’ll head for burnout, stagnation, and anonymity. You are meant for so much more.
