Becke Wolf Executive Assistant

I am proud to be an “EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT…because miracle worker is not a job title”!

Dear Joan & Jasmine:

Since I picked up your book “Who Took My Pen…Again?!” in 2013, Office Dynamics has changed my life!

I’ve been a professional assistant my entire life. I entered my career, in 1981 with no more than a pleasant personality, a sense of style and the ability to type quickly. As the years passed, I raised my children as a working Mom while adding new skills, learning new technologies, etc. I experienced a few bumps in the road but felt fairly secure that I was good at what I did and had all the skills necessary to be successful.

After reading your wonderful book, I realized I was gravely mistaken. There was obviously much more to learn. At the end of the book, I was fortunate to find information on Office Dynamics. Wow, an organization that was actually focused on administrative professionals! The most exciting part was finding out about the opportunity to gain a certification showing that I was a World Class Assistant!! I was so excited about this opportunity that I put a proposal together to bring the WCA program to Intermountain Healthcare. There was great enthusiasm among the other assistants in our department and with support from our executive leadership, it happened! Having the opportunity to meet and to be taught by you, Joan, has been the highlight of my career!

I am looking forward, with great anticipation, to my third year of participating in the Event of Distinction conference in October. I love the networking opportunities and coming away with actual tools that I can use in my profession. I thoroughly enjoyed participating in the Star Achievement Series and I am working hard to implement that program at Intermountain Healthcare.

Becke Wolf Executive Assistant

Thank you to both of you for the continuing opportunities to learn through the webinars that you offer and the other materials and programs available through the Office Dynamics website. I was recently given additional responsibilities of becoming our IS Summer Intern Program Coordinator and providing support for Dr. Stanley Huff, our Chief Medical Informatics Officer, a world-renown medical informaticist. I know that without the training I received through Office Dynamics I would not have been prepared to take advantage of these opportunities.

Thank you for providing key continued learning opportunities that are keeping me current on new technologies and giving me the confidence as well as the necessary tools needed to re-create myself into an even better support resource for my executives.

I am proud to be an “EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT…because freakin’ miracle worker is not a job title”!…it’s my career!

Best regards,

Becke Wolf, CEAP, CWCA

  1. Cheers to all of my fellow freakin Miracle Workers! I love it!

    Thanks too for the inspiration to again think about finishing the World Class Assistant program. I did part 1 a few years ago and for various reasons have not signed up for part 2. It is time to think about it.

    Question for Becke and all – If you could only choose one of either taking part 2 of the WCA or attending the Conference, which would you choose?

    1. Wow, Lisa…tough call! I LOVE conference, but I also think it is important to get your certification. If you can only do one, I would suggest you complete the WCA program. Conference will always be there for you next year! Good Luck!

      1. Thanks Becke for the reply. I am still weighing one over the other. Definitely will get to something this year.

  2. Thank you for sharing your success story with us. I used to feel like I just feel into this career path and plodded along, not really an important part of the whole. Like you, once I got started with Office Dynamics, I realized how wrong I was to feel that way. This is an important position to have, and it is a career worth choosing.

    1. Thank you Sharon. I too fell into my career, but I’m grateful because I love it! Now we just have to reach out to the next generation and get them to understand that this is an amazing career choice that not just anyone can do!

  3. I think it’s so wonderful that we have a career that allows us to grow in different disciplines and develop additional skills over the course of our careers to aid us in better supporting our executives. I appreciate that we have so many opportunities we can participate in if we put ourselves out there.

    Great job, Becke!

    Thanks for sharing Becke. I’ve found that the soft skills I’ve learned from Office Dynamics International are a huge plus. Something that should be taught in college.

    1. Thank you Jean. I agree whole-heartedly with your remark. In our Technological world often the “soft skills” are overlooked. Office Dynamics is great in focusing emphasis on their importance.

  5. Dear Becke – You have reignited my interest in the book, “Who Took My Pen…Again?” Also, I’m so impressed that you were able to successfully propose bringing the WCA program to your company, and would love to learn more about how you accomplished that, as well as how your colleagues and company have benefited as a result. I think it would be a tremendous value to my own current employer, but feel like I’m spinning my wheels – would be great to learn from someone who has already travelled that road. If you’d be willing to share, please let me know the best way for us to connect. – Thanks, Tara

    Thanks, Becke, for your encouraging words on making the administrative profession a career choice. I would be interested in knowing more about how you made the business case to bring Joan to your organization for training, since I also work for a healthcare organization. (Maybe Jasmine can help facilitate getting us together via email?)

  7. Becke has it right:

    “I am proud to be an “EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT…because freakin’ miracle worker is not a job title”!…it’s my career!”

    That’s exactly what we all are!!
