It’s COOL to be an administrative professional because you get an entire week of celebration. No other career gets a full week of recognition. Granted, some administrative professionals have told me they feel strange about a week focusing on them and if they are supposed to be considered equal to other members in the organization, they should not have a week devoted to their career. What do you think?
I understand that perspective and we are working hard every day to teach managers see their administrative partners as their strategic business partners. Yet, you do have a special week devoted to your profession; so embrace it and enjoy it!
This is a busy week for me and I am enjoying meeting administrative professionals from all walks of life. I was in Denver earlier this week and am heading to Seattle today. As I reflect on owning Office Dynamics for 20 years now, I am thankful for the thousands of administrative professionals whose lives I have been able to touch in some way, shape or form; whether it was in a live training session, through webcasts, audio conferences, through my books, blogs, or emails. It has been an honor for me to serve this profession through leadership, training, and coaching.
I look forward to branching out in new areas and providing you with very COOL tools for your very COOL profession. The entire team at Office Dynamics wishes you a fabulous Administrative Professionals Day.
