Another great way to stand out is by demonstrating expertise within your Assistant role. Developing a deep understanding of your responsibilities will make you invaluable, as it allows you to provide informed opinions and advice that others may not have access to. Developing a deep understanding of your Executive’s schedule, key responsibilities, goals and objectives will also help you make decisions to drive the business forward. In meetings, you can answer questions or voice your opinion based on understanding what the business requires and how and where to add value. Once you have that level of knowledge, you’ll be more confident to demonstrate your expertise and show those around you a willingness to take on more challenging and ultimately fulfilling work. This knowledge will also allow you to troubleshoot issues quickly and effectively, saving time for everyone involved.
