YOUniversity with Bonnie Low-Kramen & Trivinia Barber

Building the Ultimate Partnership Between Leaders & Executive Assistants

Assistants are often referred to as right arms, eyes, ears, backbones, time-savers, and culture carriers. When fully leveraged, they can also be a leader’s true executive business partner, otherwise known as your most powerful secret weapon.

CADRE is inviting members and guests together with their Executive Assistants to attend this unique event. Leaders will learn how to maximize effectiveness, productivity, and profitability by fully utilizing their Assistant. Assistants will gain insights about taking their work to the next level for the benefit of their leader, themselves, and the companies they represent.

Together we will pull back the curtain on what makes this partnership tick and how to sustain it for the long term. The goal of this highly interactive training will be to learn instantly actionable ways to empower each of you – and have a great time doing it.

Spoiler Alert: Like all healthy and strong partnerships, the one between leaders and assistants takes time, energy, and work. The ROI can be beyond expectations. You’re worth it.

Some of the takeaways you will get from Bonnie include:

  • What responsibilities are appropriate for an Assistant to handle?
  • What’s better for you? A VA or an in-person EA, or no one?
  • How to manage miscommunications
  • What is your preferred communication style?
  • Reviewing job descriptions in response to changing needs

BONUS: All attendees will receive a signed copy of Bonnie’s book Be the Ultimate Assistant plus a few surprises.
