“This is the most important member of the team”, says Michael S. Hyatt, and as a successful manager and bestselling author on leadership and business growth, he should actually know. Who he is talking about? The Executive Assistant! Hyatt has developed a compelling idea about this role: “A good executive assistant is like an air-traffic controller for your whole life.” TSCNET Services in Munich now also has such a marvel: 39-year-old Rebecca Brauer, called Becky.
Born in London, she has more than 15 years of experience as an Executive Assistant and has worked for global organisations such as the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Barclays Capital, Deloitte, and Citigroup in cities such as London, New York, Moscow, Berlin, and Brussels. She gained a wide range of international experience in different cultures and took on a variety of administrative and project management responsibilities, as well as co-ordinating on-site and off-site events.
In addition to important clients and other stakeholders, Becky on her travels around the globe fortunately also met her husband, a confirmed Bavarian, whom we owe her move to Germany (however, they got to know each other thousands of kilometres away, in California, but that’s a different story). Since New Year’s Day 2017, the two are the parents of an enchanting little daughter. “Becoming a mother has been the biggest challenge yet most rewarding role of my life,” Becky says. Now at TSCNET Services she wants to master both roles and “make my daughter proud”. With all her experience in culturally different and diverse environments she wants to support the management team and the whole company in their development and make them even stronger.
“I felt like I was going to be joining a team of highly skilled, multi-cultural individuals who all have a common aim to make TSCNET a thriving company within their industry and provide exceptional services to their clients,” reports Becky. And she quickly gained traction in her new position. “I felt that the people at TSCNET were very welcoming and had a real ‘family’ feel about the culture right away.”
As always in life, there will also be setbacks and hurdles to overcome. For such times, Michael S. Hyatt had a quote from Edward Everett Hale on the wall of his CEO office: “I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something: and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.” This by the way also goes very well with air-traffic controllers!
