Any seasoned EA knows that successful one-on-ones are integral to strengthening your relationship with your executive. With that being said, getting this consistent face-to-face time with your executive can be easier said than done. While ideally, you’d spend the time building trust, showing your support, and positioning yourself as a more strategic partner, we know that one-on-ones are often spent discussing status updates—that is—when they aren’t canceled or rescheduled.
In most cases, an executive isn’t going to have the availability to extend your one-on-ones or schedule more times throughout the week to meet. This simply means you’ll have to get strategic about how you’re spending your time together—and we can help!
Going into one-on-ones with your executive with a clear and defined plan and purpose will make the most of your time together.
Make the Most of One-on-Ones with Your Executive
As EAs ourselves, we know there are certain things that you and your executive go over each time you have a one-on-one meeting. While you may have a pretty good idea of what you’ll discuss when you’re face-to-face with your executive, what if you could have a comprehensive agenda as a guide?
