Assistants…don’t wait for your executive to ask you the status of a project, task, follow-up item or other requests. Take the initiative and provide consistent status updates, at the right times, to help your executive see how hard you work and avoid any unwelcome surprises! And you should expect your executive to give you status updates on projects, important presentations and meetings, travel and upcoming business initiatives as well. This will empower you to do a great job, so don’t be shy to ask!
