Goal Setting Information for Administrative Assistants and Executive Assistants

What if you could stop worrying about setting goals at work as an administrative assistant or executive assistant and just set them?

You can!

Here’s help…

“The Basic Guide To Goal Setting For Administrative Professionals was a lifesaver. It helped me set realistic and clearly defined goals. —Audrey G. Nesbit, administrative assistant, Columbia, South Carolina

The Basic Guide to Goal Setting for Administrative Professionals can help you if you’re all out of good goal ideas for workplace goal setting. It has even helped administrative assistants and executive assistants who have been in the administrative field for more than 20 years by giving them a way to think of their goals from a completely different perspective.

As one assistant said, a little assistance in looking at things from another perspective never hurts. This guide and the entire packet of information gives you assistance with goal setting. It’s full of basic information that defines goals and goal setting and acts as a catalyst in helping you brainstorm goal setting ideas for the administrative assistant or executive assistant job, role and career in particular. It’s practical information you can use to set goals at work on the job or in your administrative career.

Some administrative assistants and executive assistants particularly like the sections about “Questions that Inspire Goal-Setting,” “7 Things You Need to Know in Order to Set Professional Goals at Work,” and “Results vs. Activities” in The Basic Guide to Goal Setting for Administrative Professionals—which is the 12-page digital publication in this set you should begin with; the other publications are supplemental to the guide, but still full of additional information and ideas on goal setting for administrative assistants and executive assistants.
