Yes or No Tray!
A superb tip for Executive Assistants is to use the ‘Yes / No Tray’ method for getting your Director to make a decisions.
Whenever your Director has a pile of paperwork requiring their signatures, invitations, even meeting request’s, or you just need to get an answer from them. This is where the Yes, No Tray come in handy.
For example, if my Director was invited to a networking event, I would take a post-it note and write:
You are free, would you like to attend?
They would pop it in the relevant tray.
It will take your Director minutes to go through … Try it for a week & let me know how you got on.
