This week we are going to post two questions from different administrative professionals so we can get those helpful answers to them more quickly!
The first question comes from Velma, and she asks:
How do I write “Admin Goals?” Most companies want you to submit S.M.A.R.T. goals but admin duties are ongoing and don’t have completion dates (unless it is a specific task).
Ok, interesting question. I can see where Velma is getting confused but as administrative assistants setting goals there needs to be a focus not just on the tasks but maybe the individuals growth? Let’s get this administrative assistant help and give some great answers!
The second question comes from Ms. Jordan, and her question is:
What is the best way to deal with double standards (do as I say, not as I do) in the workplace?
Wow. Great question! This happens more than we like it to, so how do we deal with that. How do administrative assistants and executive assistants deal with double standards in the workplace?
