The Secret Weapon of Great Leaders

I recently came across a video on the official Harvard Business Review YouTube channel titled, The Secret Weapon of Great Leaders, and thought it would be a good topic to start a discussion about here on this site. In the video, author and business professional┬áMelba Duncan makes a case for why executives and leaders should hire executive assistants. She explains that leaders with executive assistants have the ability to become more successful, more productive, and can even rely on their assistants as “reverse mentors.” Watch the video now:

I’d like to start a discussion on this topic in the comments section below. What I want to know from you is, do you agree or disagree, and why? Do you think executive assistants are undervalued? Have you had your own experience with an executive assistant who helped you become a better leader? I want to hear from you. Please leave your comments below. Thank you!
