Chances are, everyone in your office has a “rep.” The Chirpy One. The Sloppy Dresser. The Bad Breath Guy. Fairly or unfairly, we tend to label people in our minds—and those labels change the way we treat our co-workers.
So, what do other people think of you?
Hundreds of fellow admins weigh in on that question each year. Their answers are all over the board, but one theme usually shines through: “She’s got too much on her plate!”
It’s the occupational hazard of every administrative professional. The phone rings off the hook … colleagues interrupt … the computer crashes … your boss loses his plane ticket … the school calls about a sick kid—and it’s only 10 a.m.!
We all worry what other people think of us. But instead of being thought of as The One With Too Much On Her Plate, what if you could be The One Who Handles Everything They Throw At Her?
