While I was working on some new material for my Star Achievement Series® training program for executive assistants and administrative assistants, I came across something I wrote years ago. It was an extra handout I used to give participants when I was teaching persuasion skills in class. I want to share the ideas with you. These ideas might come in handy in persuading your leader to send you to a conference or any training program.
Getting to the “yes”
You know the scenario. You read about a great seminar, workshop, or conference for administrative office professionals. The topics are of interest to you and will help you in your job. You walk into your executive’s office to request his or her approval only to hear “no”. You walk out. End of story.
We joined up with Donna Gilliland, Lucy Brazier, Julie Perrine to share with you the value of using digital media as a companion to your conference experience. In this video, we teach you ways to use Twitter, Facebook, Periscope and more before, during and after the conference.
Personal emergencies – such as illness, a death in the family, or an accident – often involve taking unexpected time off work. However, these situations can be especially challenging for administrative professionals who are responsible for keeping their executives and offices running smoothly.
When disaster strikes, you need to focus on your family and yourself during a personal disaster … not what’s going on back at work. However, to successfully disconnect and bounce back, there are some plans, systems, and procedures you need to put in place to be prepared.
We have a treat for you, a sneak peek at one of our upcoming 2015 conference sessions with Adam Timm.
