Why Being An Executive Assistant Is A Rewarding Career

Office Dynamics

In honor of Administrative Professionals Day, I want to share my thoughts on why I believe being an executive assistant is a rewarding career. When people tell me, “Anyone can do that job,” it bothers me. It tells me that person doesn’t really know what it takes to be a great assistant. I hear it from both sides of the desk. I hear assistants talk about their job or the profession as if it is no big deal.

Revolutionary Insights Into Self-Leadership for Administrative Professionals

Office Dynamics

This is a replay of the free webinar offered June 2016 titled Revolutionary Insights Into Self-Leadership (for administrative professionals). Administrative professionals don’t typically think of themselves as leaders; even the most successful struggle with the idea! After all, leaders are the people we work for, right? They guide the organization, make important decisions and steer the team toward success.

Qualities Of A Great Assistant

Office Dynamics

What qualities do assistants think you need to be a great assistant? Many times in my live workshops and seminars for executive and administrative assistants, I ask the participant to create a list of qualities, attributes, and attitudes of star-performing assistants. Over the years, I have collected more than 300 ideas. I recently came across this list from one of my classes and wanted to share it. If you are an assistant reading this blog, check off the ones that describe you.

How to Find Your Voice at Work

Eat Your Career

Basic social etiquette applies in the workplace. While you want to demonstrate assertiveness, you need to balance it with respect. I know so many amazing professionals who often tell me that speaking up at work is a challenge. It’s not that they don’t have opinions—the certainly do! And it’s not because they don’t have the smarts—these folks are the best and the brightest. But they still have an incredibly difficult time expressing themselves in the workplace.
