  2. Greetings, everyone! I hope you all are staying healthy and safe. How are you these days? Are you continuing to work from home, returning to the office, or transitiong to a hybrid of the two? I continue to be grateful that I am a remote worker of many years but, having also worked in the corporate on-site environment, empathize with those having to return to on-site. Just checking in to see how everyone is doing in these uncertain and crazy times. So ... how are you? Cheers, Betty

  7. I have been asked to come up with a professional development plan and have not 1 clue as to how to even get started and it's making me anxious.
  8. Greetings from Gainesville, Florida (actually, working remotely from Hawthorne, Florida)! Are there any other VA's (Virtual Assistants) who would like to compare notes? I am an Executive Assistant to the CEO (Orthopedics) and open to sharing what I have learned thus far, and certainly look forward to learning about everyone else's journeys. Thanks for being here!

  10. Greetings! My name is Teri and I am an executive assistant at NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, a non-profit higher education association based in Washington, DC. I am working on a personal professional development project in which I’d like to connect with other administrative professionals for informal, informational Zoom chats either 1-on-1 or in a small group. My goal is to speak with other professionals with similar roles in different fields and different types of organizations, and I’ve drafted some questions to explore: What was your journey to becomi
  11. I asked my employer and sadly they said no. Apparently there are 2 reasons of which I find interesting. 1. I was told they won't pay for any kind of certification because you could take it with you to another employer. 2. The only reimbursement offered is actual college courses. I guess the company gets some kind of tax benefit or credit from them, but not certifications. Obviously every business is different, so absolutely ask....the worst that can happen is they say NO! Good luck!

    I know that Executives receive coaching all the time, but is there also a need for Administrative Coaching for assistants that want to develop into high performers?
  13. I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, but I've been asked to update our current, quite archaic, PFS form. Does anyone have a really great form they like to use for this? Thanks
  14. Hello from Lincoln, NE!
  15. Hello all! I'm excited to get my PACE underway shortly. I'm doing this for self development first and foremost, but I would be kidding myself if I didn't acknowledge that I'm looking forward to a salary increase as my employer observes my personal commitment to bettering my best. This is something that I personally am required to foot the bill for, so I'm certainly not taking it lightly. My question is this, without divulging your salary (which I would never ask...I work in HR), did you see a pay increase once you obtained your certification? If yes, how did you go about asking for mor
  16. I have worked a few years in corporate, and educational. The educational has a fourth component (trainee/student) when corporations did away with on the job training programs that leveled the field so, everyone started with the same understandings it limited the role of trainee. So conceptual is ideas, in technical work there is still an element of training, which is people based and based on a company handbook. The educational world relies on students and unless the certification is in place you are limited.

    Hi from winston sale
  22. I am just returning to the work place from retirement and look forward to the in-person interaction. There are several changes with the emphasis and wearing a face covering throughout the day. This takes away from reading people's facial expressions which are always helpful during interaction.
  23. If this were me, I would read and re-read the job description or posting to try to identify items the manager was planning to have the (AP) Administrative Professional complete for him once a selection has been made. Because it is a "newly created position" I would get more in depth about the manager's specific expectations. Be clear going into this position (remember you are interviewing them, just like they are interviewing you). You want to make sure this is going to be a good long term fit. I would ask questions like: 1. Does the manager have enough work to to keep the AP
