Be Strong. Be Clear. Be Kind. Be Free. Be YOU!!!

Effective Communication Skill Blog

Greg Gieson tells an interesting story about a leadership training he recently led where one attendee stood out because, unlike the others, he never volunteered to lead an activity or project.

And yet at the end of the training, this attendee was voted the best leader there. 

True leadership is like that. It isn't about fanfare or recognition. It's about supporting what is needed for success and letting others be strong when it serves the mission. 

This is something admins know well - at least the best ones do. Assistants support someone else's lead by definition, and yet they continually lead by drawing out the excellence in others and being key parts of the solution. We'll be polishing that skill at Executive Admin Virtual Training Camp next month.
