Want to Become A More Valuable Business Partner?

You can do it by effectively speaking truth to power

Lincoln Copyright Shelagh DonnellyAn astute executive values an assistant’s capacity to speak truth to power. S/he needs to have confidence that you have the capacity to stand up and deliver, with tact and poise, what may sometimes be difficult information.
