For this month’s Resource Corner I had the privilege of sitting down with Al-Husein Madhany, a self-proclaimed “Impact Junkie”, to discuss a topic that often goes undiscussed in our industry: getting paid what you’re worth.

If I were a gambling gal, I’d venture a guess that a lot of executive assistants and administrative professionals don’t feel their salaries reflect the value they consistently add to their executives and organizations. I know I’ve certainly felt this way in the past!  

Resource Corner: Interview with Al-Husein Madhany

Al-Husein is a pro at coaching his clients on how to articulate the value they bring to their executives, along with helping them unlock the confidence needed in order to actually ask for what they’re worth. Having walked many people through his process, it’s not uncommon for his clients to see real results, often bringing an increase in salary between $10,000 and $25,000.

In addition to his 1:1 coaching, Al-Husein is also working on a collaboration with a couple of other big names in our industry… a collaboration that has the potential to change your career and life for the better. This is the first (and perhaps only) time that these big names will be sharing the stage and their strategies for increasing impact and salaries. You’ll definitely want to check out this video to hear how this collaboration came to be and the details of how to attend.

Here’s the deal guys, this video is exclusively for my email list. Al-Husein doesn’t do a lot of interviews and due to the industry-specific nature of the video it will not be posted publicly.

What I loved most in talking with Al-Husein was his passion for bringing change and impacting those within his rapidly expanding sphere of influence. A sphere that includes executives and assistants alike. His perspective is both refreshing and challenging as it requires us to step outside our comfort zones.
