Michael Hyatt – Your Secret Productivity Weapon
There is no one more valuable on a leader’s team than his or her Executive Assistant.
In fact, when I’m coaching entrepreneurs and executives like you in my high-end mastermind, I always recommend this is their first (or next) hire. Why? Because I know that no person on your team has the power to help you get free to focus on your most important projects like a world-class EA.
This person is your ticket to margin, focus, and sanity. A great EA anticipates your needs, guards your calendar and your office door against interruptions, keeps you focused on your top priorities, and helps you delegate with ease.
But there’s a problem—where do you find someone like this? And, if you do find them or have them on your team already, how do you train them to perform at the highest level so you can do the same?
This is the No. 1 question I get asked by entrepreneurs and executives.
That’s why I’ve created this brand-new, four-part mini-course that will reveal the system I’ve used for decades to do just this.
In this series, I interview my Director of Executive Support, Suzie Barbour. She pulls back the curtain on my business, show you how we find and train great talent, and how she expertly manages my world from an EA perspective.
I can’t wait for you to discover this fool-proof process that has been one of the biggest secrets to my success.
