Last week Office Dynamics International turned 29! I can’t believe my company is 29 years old. It has not been an easy journey, especially since I started a niche business of specialized training for administrative professionals of every title, age, and experience level. 29 years ago, there was no robust training for assistants.[Read more…]
At Office Dynamics International we love what we do. Part of what we do is provide tools and services to administrative professionals to enhance the quality of their work-life that promote administrative excellence. Below you will find all the free training for administrative assistants we offer!
We offer high-level coaching, onsite workshops, an annual conference for administrative excellence, certification and designation courses (World Class Assistant™ and Star Achievement Series®), and more. However, we aren’t able to reach every administrative professional with our premium programs.
We have a ton of value to bring to the profession and we certainly don’t want to exclude the many assistants who aren’t receiving funding to attend our live events.
Learn more about us here in our We BELIEVE credo.
Our free training programs for administrative professionals began in 2009 with the 26 Weeks to Administrative Excellence pre-recorded video program. As the year’s passed we continued to add a few additional programs >view our free video programs<.

As administrative assistants and executive assistants, we all know there are a hundred moving parts in business. There is constant change, new projects and ideas, rework, barriers, coordinating multiple people and meetings, travel, and more.

Communication does not and should not only happen within the context of a formally scheduled meeting. It is something that should always be happening, fluidly, between Executive and Assistant.

There is a huge fiery dragon roaming the earth. Some days, the dragon is a little tamer and other days the dragon is on a rampage breathing fire.
Do you know this dragon? You may not be directly affected by this dragon – the dragon can be creating pain for your industry, your employer, managers, executives, and customers. It is the financial and international economic dragon that is creating the stock market to crash 500+ plus points in a day, and then rise 420 points in a day, only to crash 600+ points the next day.
Now, what do I mean by starve the dragon? I mean don’t get pulled down and sucked into negative talk, doomsday conversations and negative attitudes. When this type of thing happens, people (you and me—everyday folks) stop buying; put life on hold and then we actually create the worst-case scenarios. [Read more…]

Welcome to Halloween week. Halloween is such an interesting holiday and is becoming almost as popular as the other major holidays. The stores, boutique shops, and online businesses sell everything to decorate your home, prepare for parties, and offer all kinds of paraphernalia.
For decades October has been the month of scary movies and costumes. People love to decorate their yard like graveyards and display spooky creatures and goblins. Do you remember when you were a kid how these things scared you at Halloween? Well, maybe not you—but they certainly scared me. [Read more…]
