In case you have not read the past few Blogs, I had interviewed two great people this year. They were an absolute delight to interview and I appreciate all the time they took to share their tips to a successful business partnership. Here is my last Blog from their interview.

5 Key Actions to Building a Relationship with Your Executive

Office Dynamics

Here we are back to my interview with Maria Berthiaume CPS from Harrison College. Professional demeanor. Many managers and executives tell me they guard themselves from being open because they aren't sure that their assistant will react in a professional manner. I have met many administrative professionals over the years who are afraid to openly talk with their manager whether it is about having more one-on-one's or expressing their opinion about a process.
