Congratulations to Week #3 Blog-A-Thon Winner hjacobs!
Hello Monday Motivators!
Well, we are in our new office! We had quite a week last week at Office Dynamics. I forgot how much work moving is and the disruption to your daily business activities. However, we were so excited about our new surroundings that we just went with the flow. We had a few hiccups with technology, which thanks to my dynamic team, was resolved by the end of the week. All in all, we had a very successful move.
It’s interesting for me to experience change in my environment because it had been 5 years since I moved our office. Several times throughout last week of settling in, I thought about my presentation on change, which I have given for 20 years. I was thinking about how even when we experience changes we want and embrace, we still go through adjustments. All of us have been adjusting to our new workspaces (which are spacious and better than ever), trying to find supplies and items because they have been located to a new places, digging through unpacked boxes, meeting our neighbor businesses (they are great), and the list goes on and on.
But what does this have to do with Administrative Professionals’ Week and Monday Motivators? First, if it were not for my dynamic administrative team, things would not have gone as well as they did during out move; it was because Jasmine and Michele were organized, efficient, cost conscious, good communicators, enthusiastic, and team players.
Although we often hear this phrase, it is true: Administrative office professionals are the glue that hold it all together. They influence an executive’s success and can impact the organization’s bottom line. It is a very COOL profession because administrative professionals are in a position to affect other’s success. They get to be an important piece of a big puzzle that no person could manage without their support.
If you are an administrative professional reading this Monday Motivator, I wish you a wonderful week and thank you for all your hard work and dedication. You are so COOL! I hope you have been participating in our April Blog-a-thon. There is still time to participate and you could win a Kindle on Wednesday or a Livescribe smartpen on Friday.
If you are a non-administrative professional, please thank your administrative professionals for a great job. And more importantly, let them know one thing you like that they do really well.
Have a great week everyone!
