Welcome to my Blog. I decided to create a Blog because of my strong belief that it is the free-flowing sharing of information that is the key to success for all Administrative Professionals. We can’t all be good at everything, but we are all good at many things. Those are the things I want to explore on this Blog. No membership cost or passwords. Just solid information and useful feedback between us.
So here’s the deal. In part, this Blog is designed to test my theory that admins need and want to help other admins. When that happens, we all learn and do our jobs better. The theory concludes with each of us ultimately making more money and enjoying more free time. Please prove me right.
Because of work, travel, or just life moving in, there may be a day or two when I can’t sign on to this Blog to answer a question. I invite you to answer it for me.
I want this Blog to serve two groups:
- Administrative Professionals (4.1 million in the U.S., 95% are women)
- Employers/Managers/Business Owners who employ Administrative Professionals (approx. 60% of U.S. business owers are male, 40% are female)
We all know the workplace has changed and is continuing to change at a rapid pace. These changes affect both admins and whoever is supervising. It is a relationship that impacts the effectiveness of each constituent. It is a living, breathing, dynamic relationship. If we care about our work as admins, then we need to pay attention to how we deal with our employers and how they deal with us.
There are many issues to discuss and problems to solve. Such as: How are gender issues affecting the workplace for assistants? and; Is abusive behavior in the workplace getter better or worse and what can we do about it?
Let us have a dialogue between these two groups and see what problems we can solve together. To help get us started, I’ve written an article called “Ten Things to Know About Working With an Assistant, or (What They Don’t Teach You in Business School.)”
Just click on the Managers and Business Owners tab.
