Great Assistants Are In the Know

Great assistants know

It’s COOL to be an administrative professional because you are privy to information that other employees are not or you may be given a heads up on an upcoming change before other employees are told.

When I think back to some of the executives I worked with as a strategic business partner, there were numerous occasions when they would share important information with me. That made me feel trustworthy and like a confidante. Often the information they shared was to help me be prepared for upcoming situations or events. It was great to be “in the know” so I could be proactive, take the initiative, and also not be caught off guard should another employee come and ask me questions about something they heard.

There were times I was privy to financials which helped me look for creative ways to save money or leverage supplies and equipment. Yes, there were probably a few times I wish had not been told certain things but I knew how to protect information when I needed. That is also the COOL thing about being an executive assistant or administrative professional. . . you have to learn how to communicate in a way that you are being truthful, yet keeping confidences when necessary.
