Skills for the Administrative Assistant

    Work is not the only thing that matters in life, but most of us want to take pride in what we do. While we don’t have to like the people we work with, or report to, at the very least we should be able to interact positively with them. The biggest influence on job satisfaction is our relationship with others. Our work should not be a burden to us and our offices shouldn’t be battlefields. We are human beings working with other human beings. This two day workshop is about working to the best of your abilities, and encouraging the best in those who work with you, or for you.
