Publisher's Summary

Assistant, you are a leader.

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 coworker, 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 audiobook 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.

Are you ready to be the leader assistant the world needs?

Thank you - loved it

Loved the book. I was on the edge of burnout when I started reading. It has given me not only hope for better days but the ability to say no, regain a little of my sanity and examples that mirror my own stressors. I’ve managed to say no for the first time and help me feel less guilty about taking time off. Thank you so much for writing this. It should be on every assistants reading list.

Wonderful content; agonizing delivery

I thoroughly appreciated the content in The Leader Assistant; thankfully I am fully capable of clicking the 1.5 speed button. The bonus material is almost overwhelming, almost ;-) thank you Jeremy for putting it all out there. Jeremy provides actually useful tips and suggestions and very practical tools.

Practical, Insightful, Entertaining

Jeremy is a good storyteller! But this book is anything but a fable. His wisdom, knowledge and expertise conveyed through stories helps demonstrate practical application. From what NOT to do, what to be cautious of, and what tools/strategies will help you ROCK as a leader assistant, his communication is clear and effortless. The Leader Assistant is a MUST READ for anyone in a support role, and a SHOULD READ for those with supporting direct reports.

Wow! Crystal clear EA coaching in a book.

I love this book. It has relevant transparent stories that illustrate powerful leverage-giving insights. When listening, I felt like I had a coach in the room with me. I recommend it to all my executive and EA friends.
