Effective Executive/Efficient Assistant (Part 1)
- What do I do with an administrative assistant?
- What kind of tasks can I give my admin?
- How do I manage my admin?
One of the lost arts of the corporate world in the past 20 years is how to work with an administrative assistant. While we won't argue that a great deal of the "leaning out" of corporations has been a good thing, working with admins effectively is one of the painful legacies of the cutbacks.
