As a leader, Tricia knows firsthand how difficult it is to delegate. She knows it takes time to set up systems and processes and to get to know someone so well they can answer emails as if they were you. She knows it takes time to build trust and let go.
As a former EA, she also knows how difficult it is to be an assistant to high-achieving leaders who are so busy that they don’t want to slow down long enough to delegate. She knows how hard it is to watch them suffer from over-scheduling and over-promising. No amount of proactiveness can overcompensate for the lack of delegation.
So her book, Rise Up and Lead Well: How Leveraging An Assistant Will Change Your Life & Maximize Your Time, seeks to address that very dynamic, as viewed from both sides of the desk, so both leaders and assistants can maximize their productivity and strike the work-life balance they both deserve.
