Great stuff again from Jeremy Burrows! Jeremy is an Executive Assistant, Author and Podcast host.

In this Op-Ed for Base, Jeremy discusses effective Communication, and outlines specific questions Executives and their Assistants should be asking each other.

“Think back to some of the best conversations you’ve ever had. Or, the best podcast interviews you’ve ever listened to. Or, the best counseling or therapy session you were a part of. What was the common thread in all of these? They were full of good questions!”

Open and frequent communication is vital to cultivating the CEO/Executive Assistant relationship. We mentor Athena EAs in being effective with our clients, ensuring the lines of communication are open and honest so clients are left spending their time on what they are most uniquely equipped to handle.

Honest conversations can sometimes be humbling or even uncomfortable, but the ultimate reward that comes from having them is certainly worth it!
