Most of the clients who come to us know that they need support but usually aren’t sure where to begin. It’s important that you start with a plan that consists of what, how, and when you will delegate to your executive assistant. Without a plan, you stand the chance of underutilizing your assistant and the outcome will be that you don’t get the full support that you desire.
Also, you should get a return on your investment of hiring an assistant, and that comes in the form of time. The extra time that you get allows you to focus on the areas that will drive the growth and revenue of your company. Below are a few steps to follow to help you get off to a good start of developing your list of items that you can delegate to your executive virtual assistant.
- Determine what only you want to do in your business
- Next, make a list of everything else that you currently handle
- To ensure that you don’t miss anything, take it a step further and track everything that you do on a daily basis for one week
Once you’ve completed this exercise, you should have a good plan of what you can delegate. Organization will help you get off to a great start in your working relationship with your assistant.
