We talk a lot about how to work successfully with your executive and build a partnership with him or her. But there’s another inevitable side of working with someone, and that’s when they transition out of a role or leave a company entirely. Saying goodbye, and helping your executive have a smooth departure, is just as important as welcoming a new one.
It’s never easy when an executive leaves – regardless of whether you’re happy or sad to see him or her go. However, there are some things you can do to make the process less stressful for both of you. I share some insights from my own career experiences in this area in this week’s feature article. We’re also sharing our best tips and advice on what you can do to make things easier for a departing exec (and yourself) on our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages.
On Tuesday, I hosted a free webinar to help assistants get their administrative procedures manual launched. If you missed it, you can still access the replay here. Procedures are huge when it comes to business continuity and succession planning for you, your team, and the executives you support. So if you still don’t have yours in place, it’s time to take action and make it happen.
This free webinar is the first module in our updated, month-long procedures course, which provides the weekly support and accountability you need to complete your administrative procedures.
