Embracing the “Owner” Mentality with Special Guest & Upcoming 2016 Conference Speaker, Daren Martin, PhD.

As an administrative professional, you probably think of yourself as an employee. You provide a service to your organization, and in return, they provide a paycheck. But what would life be like if you were to shift your mindset and instead of thinking like an employee, you thought like an owner? In today’s competitive business world, this is perhaps the most essential hidden ingredient for exceptional career success and professional satisfaction—and it’s 100% within your control.

In this free webinar replay, Joan and her special guest, Daren Martin, PhD, are exploring the revolutionary concept of the ownership mentality—what it is, why it matters, and how to develop it. Daren is the author of “A Company of Owners,” a book that’s taking the corporate world by storm, transforming how organizations operate and how employees think. We’re thrilled that Daren will also be a keynote speaker at the Office Dynamics 23rd Annual Conference for Administrative Excellence in October!

We recently sat down with Conference Sponsor, TRAVO to talk about their revolutionary solution to the travel planning problems that assistants are facing every day.

For an assistant, travel planning can be a nightmare! It’s one of the most taxing, time-consuming aspects of your role, whether you’re planning a quick overnight trip or a two-week, multi-stop world tour. You might spend hours preparing the itinerary, choosing flights, identifying transportation and lodging options, and ensuring the timing is perfect. If you’re a sharp-minded assistant, you’ll also take the many preferences of your executive into consideration, a task that makes the whole process even more complicated. Then, of course, plans can change at the drop of a hat and your work starts all over again.

It’s almost enough to break the spirit of the most dedicated administrative professional!

The problem of travel planning is massive and it’s plagued our field for decades. In this month’s webinar, administrative training expert Joan Burge is revealing the solution—a brand new way to ease the burden on you and ensure your executive is happy. With special guest, Tae Lee, founder of TRAVO, Joan will host a vibrant conversation designed to change your perspective. You’ll begin to see travel planning as an opportunity, rather than an obstacle, to demonstrate your revolutionary skills. All you need is a new approach!

In case you’re not aware, TRAVO is revolutionizing the world of travel planning. Its all-in-one planner is the fastest, easiest, and smartest way to manage individual profiles and preferences and create custom end-to-end itineraries. It’s truly a game changer for administrative professionals!

How to Develop Your Inner Circle, a Webinar Replay with Peggy Vasquez

Almost every successful person freely admits that success is not a one-person job. Without a trusted support network—an “inner circle” of people to share their wisdom, experience, and belief in you—the road to success is elusive, if not impossible. Regardless of your job title, intelligence level or personal skill set, there is one certainty that always holds true: You simply cannot achieve your vision of greatness (whatever it may be) without the help of other people.

For years, Joan Burge has taught Administrative Professionals how to break into the management inner circle by embracing a powerful set of professional principles. In this month’s webinar, Joan is talking to a special guest, Peggy Vasquez, a successful Administrative Professional and author of “Not Just an Admin.” Together, they’ll be exploring another type of inner circle—the kind you create for yourself. Just as executives in the workplace have their team of advisors and confidants, so too should you. With the help of your inner circle, you can gain greater momentum to carry you closer to your goals, dreams, and desires both personally and professionally.

This webinar offers a special “sneak peek” at the topic Peggy will be presenting at the 23rd Annual Conference for Administrative Excellence. If you’re ready to revolutionize your life and career, don’t miss out!

Learning highlights from this webinar:

  • Why developing your inner circle is a crucial part of success in ALL areas of life, not just work.
  • What your inner circle really brings to the table. Hint: It’s not just about “networking” for a new job!
  • How the idea of the inner circle is revolutionary and why it has the power to raise the level of respect for our profession.
  • Simple strategies for creating your own inner circle and attracting meaningful connections with the right people.
