What Does Everyone Expect From You? What Do You Expect From Yourself?
Today's competitive environment demands more from office support personnel than ever before. Today's secretaries and administrative assistants are professionals who need a sophisticated set of skills to meet their daily challenges.
You are expected to:
- Communicate with people from every level of the organization...by phone, e-mail, memo, or in person
- Juggle multiple priorities and demands with a packed schedule and tight timing — all while staying cool, collected, and organized
- Stay on top of everything despite unforeseen changes, difficult people, conflicts, and problems
Sound challenging? Unquestionably, it is. That's why this conference was designed — to help you do your job better in the face of increased demands and pressure.
