C-Suite: Defined and Demystified
What is the C-Suite and is it really that different to be in a C Suite role? YES!
C-Suite Executives are the top tier of the organization. Boldly stated, they are the most powerful and influential members who hold the keys to the company’s strategy. As a C- Suite Administrative Assistant, you navigate multiple, ever-changing priorities, where pressures mount in tandem with increasing stakes. All while representing the culture of the company and the face of your executive’s brand. And frankly, it can be lonely at the top.
So why would anyone want to be part of the C-Suite? Because you have a front row seat as you become part of the executive team; sharing in the collective success, key decisions, and confidential business objectives. Leadership skills compliment your strong fundamental skill set. This is a rewarding position as you grow in resiliency and respect amongst your peers.
Julie is extremely knowledgeable on this topic as someone who achieved great success during her administrative career. Having coached and mentored multiple administrative assistants who are curious about moving into this space, or who are currently in this role, she is ready to answer questions and share best practices.
Whether you want to move into the C-Suite or are already in the C-Suite, you can attend this intimate session.
