I am sitting here wondering about the security of my job this afternoon giving the current situation. I'm in hospitality so we are facing a major disruption to our business. That thought has led me to an idea. It's times like these where as EA's we can really add value to our executives who are no doubt in crisis mode right now.
Let's start a discussion and get some idea's going which will not only keep us busy (and distracted!!) but also help the executives we support and each other through this difficult time. No idea is a bad idea, I'll start us off with just a few:
- look for areas to reduce cost, eg subscriptions, cancel newspapers etc
- check that all logins for every app / program are working remotely for your exec, in our company for e.g I've ensured all CCTV camera's at our venue's are operational on his mobile
- speak to your boss about scheduling regular situation update meetings, even if it's just 10 mins a day with his leadership team
Looking forward to seeing some idea's!
