    Touch of fame elevates Welch's secretary's management tips

    This is the reminiscence of a famous CEO¿s secretary, but it is better than you might expect. Jack Welch¿s former executive assistant and now author Rosanne Badowski spins anecdotes nicely. She also provides some possibly inadvertent grains of salt to season everything else you may have read about her boss. However, the idea that her warmly chatty observations can generate a respectable book is a tribute to the power of his legend - and her entertaining recollections. The image of a CEO whose secretary has to go through his trash to keep track of what he¿s been doing is very revealing. So is the idea of a secretary going behind her super-boss like Mommy behind a toddler, turning off faucets he can¿t be bothered to shut for himself. Welch acknowledges in the forewordthat he was a difficult, sometimes aggravating boss. He says Badowski, 'lived and breathed work,' and he praises her 'loyalty, discretion and forgiveness' and well as her long hours, the care she took with confidential information and her talent for dealing with those who seek it. Badowski pulls few punches, so you may well agree with Welch¿s self-assessment after you read her book. However, Welch was also, on occasion, a brilliant manager, and Badowski became a strong one, too. We find that her up-close viewpoint includes some useful managerial insights and just enough gossip to keep your batteries charged.

    A Good Getting Started Book

    I am new to the Executive Assistant level of Administrative Assistants. I found Ms. Badowski's book very informative for someone who is just getting started. It was enjoyable read. She used very relatable examples and used humor to help move the book along.
