I think administrative assistants are maybe the most important part of any organization. They get a lot of shit done, they remove obstacles and deal with the time-sucks, and they do it at all at a relatively inexpensive rate. In fact, I wrote a blog post a while ago praising them as potentially one of the most important members you might have on any HR team. But I got a bone to pick, yo. And while maybe a generalization, my bone pertains mostly to executive administration assistants…
Stop being such a rhymes-with-witch!
First: you never smile. That just bothers me. Of all the people who smile in the office, you should be one of them. In fact, isn’t that in your job description? Second: just because you work for the CEO doesn’t mean you are the CEO. Get the ‘f over it. Third: I know I’m a pain in the ass, but stop acting like I’m an intruder. I actually get paid to get stuff done and sometimes getting stuff done means getting into that office you guard like Cerberus. Fourth: You ain’t all that. Fifth: Man I don’t know, just shut up.
o.k. I’m done.
