Overview

The Boss and The Assistant. It's a basic business relationship, and the structure is easy: The Boss gives orders, and The Assistant obeys. But there's an alternative that's better for both assistant and boss, and it's called ""partnership."" In this eye-opening book, assistants learn how they can break out of old, narrow roles and enjoy working with a boss instead of for a boss. This change liberates creativity and self-confidence, and reveals hidden skills and interests. It also makes an assistant more valuable (and promotable) to the boss and the company. Readers learn specific techniques for how to:
• initiate the transition to a partnering relationship
• understand their boss's work style and adapt to it — without losing their sense of self
• become a proactive worker who takes responsibility for mistakes and credit for successes
