I’m in Las Vegas this week attending the Office Dynamics Conference for Administrative Excellence. The theme of this year’s event is The Resilient Assistant, and the content and information being shared here has been phenomenal! It has given me a lot of new ideas on how to continue developing my resilience skillset and why it’s crucial that I do.
Being an administrative professional is a complex role. We have such diversity in our responsibilities. Our executives depend on us for almost everything. So when setbacks occur or adversity strikes – whether it’s for us personally, for our executive, or for our entire company – admins are at the center of helping navigate it. That’s why resilience is a required skillset you must actively develop and nurture, so you’re ready to handle whatever comes your way.
On our blog and social sites this week, we’ve been talking about becoming the well-rounded support person your executive needs. As an admin, you probably have a pretty broad skillset. But do you know how to leverage those skills to advance your career and assist your executive and colleagues? Becoming more resilient, learning to take the initiative, developing your personal brand, and becoming really good at anticipating people’s needs can go a long way in helping you accomplish both. This week’s feature article includes advice and resources on how to be a more well-rounded, supportive assistant.
