Administrative Assistants Working on a Team – Ask an Admin


Ask an Admin is a place where administrative assistants and executive assistants can get advice…from each other! This peer to peer interaction allows us to not only make the administrative profession stronger but it also gives us a great way to network and interact with one another.

This week Ms. G presents a tough scenario:

How do you deal with a write up in your performance evaluation that states:  Continue to work as a team player with Administrative Specialist staff to collectively resolve scheduling conflicts and achieve the common goal of more frequent communication to provide exemplary support to the office. 

***When your co-worker won’t talk to you to handle scheduling and you have addressed it several times over the years? She is the Senior Administrative Specialist in the office.

Ok, that’s a pretty tough one. How do you communicate with someone that is not being a team player and communicating back or effectively?

About Ask an Admin:
