Phyllis Song: Communicating Effectively with Virtual Assistants

View descriptionShare

Conveying your vision of a project or goal to your team can be difficult, especially when miles (and maybe time zones) apart. This week Phyllis Song shares how she coaches clients to make the most of the Virtual Assistants on their teams and simple strategies you can use to communicate your wants and needs effectively to the people who support you.

Laura and Phyllis discuss why hiring a Virtual Assistant is not a one-size-fits-all experience, and some common roles a virtual team member can help you fill. Phyllis also shares the common communication mistakes that occur when leading a virtual team and how you can avoid them.


Here are a few things you’ll learn during this conversation:

  • How to vet your Virtual Assistant
  • Uncommon tasks you should consider for your Virtual Assistant
  • The most common DiSC type that needs a VA
  • How to create a system to get what you ask for the first time
  • Why celebrating wins with your virtual team is critical for long-term success


Phyllis Song is the Queen of Virtual Assistants. Her favorite quote is by Zig Ziglar: "You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want," so with an army of over 400 virtual assistants at the ready, her mission is to help as many business owners as possible to successfully create their ultimate impact on the world AND freedom for themselves at the same time.
