Question: “I’ve been put off by an admin who says, “I’m too busy, I can’t talk to you now.”  I wasn’t asking to chat; I had a legitimate question. What’s a polite way to tell someone that you can’t help them at this time without offending them?” – Terri

Question: “As 2010 comes to a close, I must complete a self-assessment of my performance for the year. As an administrative professional to senior executives, I struggle every year to complete my self-assessment. I know that I add value to the company and what I do is important, but my accomplishments sometimes seem insignificant when I put them on paper.  My duties are so varied and ‘on the fly,’ taking care of immediate priorities, it is difficult to pinpoint my achievements.  Can you give me suggestions on how to show the value I am contributing?” — Terri

Question: “I have been a secretary for 20 years, so I have the necessary job skills. However, when my current supervisor or her boss (both women) berates me, I am very intimidated by them. How can I deal with this and learn to appropriately stand up for myself in a professional manner?” — Kelly
