The role of the administrative assistant is to make their boss more successful with them than they can be without them, so how does that happen? A huge part of it has to do with communication. You need to know your boss well enough that you know when to give them space and when to have a sit down discussion; tell them what they need to hear versus what they want to hear. In order to do this, you need to create a powerful partnership based on trust and respect. Powerful partners depend on each other to achieve a common purpose. When in synch, each partner contributes to the other’s accomplishments creating a win-win partnership.
