As part of the International Year of the Secretary/Assistant 2014, participating organisations are developing themes for their members in order to raise awareness of Secretaries and Assistants throughout the world… This month is:
Mentoring and coaching as a form of keeping standards of the profession
Seek opportunities to show you care. The smallest gestures often make the biggest difference.
― John Wooden
I am the biggest fan ever of people at the top helping newbies step up. I have the most fabulous team of people who help me run my business and over the years a lot of them have left me because their own workload has expanded so much… Whilst that’s a loss to me, I’m always really happy to see them succeed.
There are lots of courses and mentoring out there for VAs, but this month I wanted everyone to take 15 minutes of their time to help another VA:
- Answer a question on the forum
- Share the software or equipment you use to power your business
- Send an aspiring VA a link to the www.societyofvirtualassistants.co.uk site!
A small thing which might change the course of history!
