Make The Most Of Meetings
Whether you are an executive assistant at the top of your game, a midlevel assistant with a "Tiger by the tail," or a newbie just learning your strengths, take the time to observe and get involved in the process of meeting effectively. The future of every organization depends on it. Gradually, over a series of meetings, people learn each other's strengths. They form alliances around shared interests. Effective leaders harness these alliances to power up assignments and produce impressive results. From your vantage point with senior executives, you have a close-up view of smart meeting leadership. Emulate it when it's your turn to lead a group.
