                                   Are You Amazing? Check This Out

Listen to our podcast to start your day ON THE RIGHT TRACK! The podcast is only 2 minutes long and will give you three quick tips to be amazing!

There are so many elements to being Amazing. For this newsletter I will focus on just one element “How do others see you?”

Our webinar on September 27 provides an entire hour of tips, tactics, and techniques to help you be amazing. 

Look at your desk. Does it look amazing?

There is a big difference between neat and organized. Just because you aren’t neat, it doesn’t mean you aren’t organized. However, having a messy desk does mean that people may assume you are disorganized and will probably treat you as such.

When you’re not organized—or when people think you aren’t—they will tend to follow up with you more often than they would with other people, wasting your time and theirs.

Or, they may not give you a task or responsibility because they will assume you aren’t efficient enough to get the job done (even if you are). They determine that you are “not” amazing. This is bad.

How can you make sure you’re portraying yourself as an amazing, organized, efficient professional? What does “neat” look like?

  • Before you go home at night, make sure it’s obvious that you are not still there. If you’re working, a little clutter is fine but if you’re away for an extended period of time, or the workday is over, tidy up.
  • Limit the number of piles of paper on your desk. Put them away or find some type of accordion filing system that will let you store “like” piles together, out of sight.
  • Get vertical filing racks for the walls of your workspace.
  • Don’t keep duplicates on your desk. Do you really need a coffee mug with 18 pens in it?
  • Cut down on the number of sticky notes around your workspace. Find a better way to organize your reminders.Messy doesn’t mean unorganized. Many people work in “organized chaos,” and they know exactly where everything is and they can keep track of every project they’re working on.
However, perception is reality, and if people assume you’re incompetent because of the messy way you work, the cost is to your reputation. Isn’t it worth investing just a little bit of time each day to take control over your mess—and other people’s perception of you?
       The Amazing Assistant Webinar – September 27, 2017


I can hope that you are already Amazing, but to help us all celebrate what we do, it is sometimes good to reinforce those things that only the Amazing Assistants do. Hopefully you are already doing them all, but if you’ve attended other sessions with me, you realize that my perspective is not the “same old same old” that you get in other programs. Make sure you are doing those invisible things that most are not doing (don’t assume you are!).

For this one hour webinar, we are going to refine and expand the critical skills that make you better than good, they make you Amazing.

Finally, come to work because you want to and because you know you make a difference!

Achieve satisfaction at the end of the day because you know you excel in what you do – and others know it too! Be proud, stand tall and be confident in your ability to be an Amazing Assistant.
