Why Being An Executive Assistant Is A Rewarding Career

Office Dynamics

Stress reducer. 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.

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.
