Administrative Assistants are often overworked, overstretched and overburdened. They are expected to be all things for all people, and often support not just one boss or one team, but multiple teams and multiple bosses. This workshop is designed to provide practical tips and tools to improve personal effectiveness in what often times can be called, “a mad, mad workplace.” Additionally, we will provide practical tips for handling emotions and avoid becoming stressed out even when you are endlessly interrupted or have ever-changing “top” priorities.

  • Administrators needing to provide good business results quickly and effectively
  • Anyone who supports decision-makers and bosses who need professional support staff
