Free Preview Webinar: Executive Admin Training Camp Overview and Introduction
Here's the replay of the preview webinar:
And the slide-only version.
Turn those numbers around, and you turn a company or organization around. That's how important administrative professionals, executive assistants and support staff who create and apply the systems of administration are. Empower these voices and you empower efficiency, productivity and profits.
How many times in your life and career have you wondered - how on earth do I respond to that?!?
There's no argument about the importance of exceptional interpersonal communication skills. Eighty-one percent of human resource managers state that effective verbal communication skills are in greatest demand by their firms for hiring administrative and office professionals. Knowing what to say makes all the difference.
Effective communication is simple in theory, but difficult in practice. In fact, it can be downright messy. Sometimes, it's difficult to get the right words across from one situation to the next.
That's why we here at SpeakStrong have resources just for admins and office pros.
Dallas Texas, April 17-18 We start at the beginning and get into detail about how to run a lean and organized executive office, with emphasis on the communication skills to turn the best plans into reality through influence and clarity. More info is here.
If you're looking for a dynamic, empowering keynote for adminstrative assistants, The Proficiency Memo is for you and your event. This lively administrative assistant keynote inspires executive assistants, support staff and other office professionals to reach their highest level of excellence.
Or, check out my signature keynote, Some Boats Need to be Rocked. It inspires, motivates and equips administrative professionals to speak up effectively when something needs to be said.
Hundreds of phrases you will use every day. Get clarity about your assignments. Speak effectively on behalf of your manager. Position yourself for promotions. Cultivate allies at every level of the organization. Gracefully correct your manager's mistakes. Ask for interesting assignments. Refuse questionable requests. Get your managers talking to each other.
Here's one review of many.
Having been on both sides of the spectrum - administrative professional and manager - this book speaks to all phases of any business setting. On a scale of 1 to 10, this book rates a +20 in the scope of tips and advice for handling any business (and even personal) situation in the professional, non-problematic way. Highly recommended reading for both the entry level as well as the experienced office professional. Great job putting a resource out there for anyone who wants to make a positive impression in today's business environment.
