The Best Assistant Learning Resources
Office Dynamics International is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Since 1990, we have provided rich resources for administrative professionals around the world. As you can imagine, we have covered thousands of assistant-focused topics over the decades. Everything from improving time-management skills to refining your career portfolio to compete in a post-COVID-19 workplace.
That is why we’ve compiled a list of our best assistant learning resources from the past 30 years. This all-inclusive archive features webinars, recorded conferences, e-books, workshops, blogs and so much more.
Each of the links below was featured because assistants have deemed it highly-in-demand, career-catapulting, and developmentally beneficial.
How Our History Benefits Your Future
Before she started Office Dynamics International in 1990, founder, Joan Burge, was as an assistant for 20 years. She worked in the corporate world, felt the pressure, demands, and frustrations as well as the rewards of the role. Her experience and knowledge come from a combined 50 years as an assistant and CEO of an educational and training company for administrative professionals.
Applying Assistant Learning to Your Career
We know what you are thinking “30 years, 30+ different pieces of content to digest; how do I know what piece of information is best for me at this phase of my career?” Approach the list below as you would your tasks at work. Review what is in front of you and ask yourself “What am I struggling with the most right now? What goals do I have and how will the content help me achieve them?” By answering these questions honestly, you can begin to put together a prioritized list to reference once a week.
You can easily fit in a quick reading or video session in the morning, during lunch, after dinner, or before bed. In doing so you will create a routine that will help you digest and apply what you learn without getting overwhelmed. Think of the possibilities! You can read a piece of content one week and apply it the following week, and so forth. You choose your timeline for progression.

Joan, I don’t know where you have been all my life! I appreciate you and your team so much! I am 63 and been with STARBASE Oklahoma in Tulsa for 21 years! It would take me more than a couple of sentences to explain what I do for STARBASE as an Admin Assistant. But I can explain that we are a Youth National Guard Program that has 7 classrooms across the state of Oklahoma that teach STEM to 5th grade students from different school districts across the state and I am the Admin Assistant to all 7 classrooms and the main office staff in Tulsa. Since the students come to us, we did not have classes and working from home with none of our teaching staff teaching, I had extra time to research and learn. When I stumbled on your website, I felt like I struck Gold! Thank you so much for all you and your team at Office Dynamics do! And Congratulations on your 30 years of service to everyone that crosses your path, be it thru the internet or in person! I wish I’d have known about you 20+ years ago!!
