We don't know what we don't know

I have been on some interactive sites where assistants ask questions and get answers and I learn from them as I have some of the same questions. Lunch n learns are also a good way to learn from each other. Try sharing your ideas and learning from the experiences of others.

A Meeting With Me

Productivityist

I used to detest meetings. There were even some coworkers who loved the time that meetings took up in their day. Maybe it was because meetings were a form of escape from the day-to-day for them. But I did not enjoy meetings at all. In every meeting I could feel the call from my daily task list reminding me of what I could be doing instead. I also felt anxious because there would be even more landing my plate before said meetings were over.

A Look at Less Meeting

Productivityist

I’m not a fan of meetings. Less Meeting has helped me deal with meetings more effectively and efficiently — and it scales in a way that allows people to slowly adopt it without feeling overwhelmed. The service acts as a one-stop shop for all of your meeting needs. You can schedule meetings through Less Meeting (although I generally use Doodle for that) and share meeting minutes both on the fly and after meetings.

Whose meeting is it anyway?

Mentoring a Young Executive - Jodith Allen

Office Dynamics

One of the toughest, but most rewarding, jobs an Administrative or Executive Assistant can have is helping a young executive learn how to partner with an assistant. Learning the Role of the Administrative or Executive Assistant. It takes time for new executives to learn to trust the abilities of their assistants. We know how to set and monitor a department budget, take meeting minutes, research topics and write reports, and that’s just for starters.

And I also use Evernote for meetings. Now I know there are plenty of services out there that you can use for meeting organization. Sure, a meeting organization tool or service is going to be useful right out of the gate without any sort of manipulation, but you still need to learn how to use it effectively. But if you’re already using Evernote (or are a user but don’t use it enough), why not modify it to serve your meeting needs? Click here to learn more.
