Influence is not just a skill; it’s an art that shapes every aspect of our professional lives. In this free webinar, we will learn how to set the year off on the right foot and make 2024 the year of influence for our administrative roles.

For executive assistants (EAs), influence manifests in various impactful ways:

Gatekeeping & Prioritization

As the gatekeeper to executives, EAs determine which issues or individuals take precedence, significantly influencing organizational focus.

Managing Information Flow

By filtering and prioritizing information, EAs shape critical executive decisions, ensuring that only the most pertinent details command attention.

Building Relationships

EAs are at the heart of interdepartmental and external stakeholder interactions, fostering relationships that benefit both the executive and the organization.

Project Leadership

In their role as project managers, EAs guide initiatives to successful completion, influencing outcomes through effective resource and timeline management.

Executive Representation

When representing executives, EAs influence perceptions and can significantly impact how both the executive and the organization are viewed.

Institutional Knowledge

EAs' deep understanding of the company's history and processes makes them invaluable advisors in decision-making.

Feedback and Insight:

Trusted by executives, EAs provide critical feedback on organizational perceptions, offering a unique and essential perspective.

Influence is crucial for EAs aspiring to be strategic partners and make a tangible impact on their company and the lives of others. We should never underestimate our impact but instead, leverage our influence to create powerful results.
