Jan Jones | The CEO's Secret Weapon | Book Review by Lisa Woodruff CEO of Organize 365
On Mondays, I will be posting a podcast recording of previously recorded book reviews. These are books that have impacted me that I want to share with you. In September, I review the books that helped me to build the Dream Team I have today. Business leadership and team building are one of my favorite parts of being a CEO. I also share how I found and use a highly skilled executive assistant to improve my own productivity. I share about how I have searched for and added team members, how we delegate, and how we are navigating the different stages of building a business.
This week, I am reviewing The CEO’s Secret Weapon: How Great Leaders and Their Assistants Maximize Productivity and Effectiveness by Jan Jones. In 2015, I hired Pat as my executive assistant and my first official W-2 employee. She came to me with extensive experience as a corporate executive. This book helped me to change my mindset and to understand the skills that a true executive assistant can do for a CEO of a corporation. The EA knows and manages details to keep me on track and move me toward success. If you are looking for your first hire or to level up your business, this book is for you!
