Time Management for Admins: Working with the Unique Challenges Facing Support ProfessionalsTrack 4

Chrissy Scivicque, Career Coach and Corporate Trainer, EatYourCareer.com
Admins have a unique set of time management challenges. In essence, as a support professional, your time is not your own. Your job is (primarily) to help others accomplish their goals. Therefore, when they need something, you’re supposed to drop what you’re doing and help. To make matters worse, they often need things that are both unexpected and urgent. Simply closing your door and focusing on your own priorities isn’t an option. All of this can make time management feel like a nearly impossible task! But take heart…there are strategies that will help you make the most of your time, while still being appropriately responsive to the needs of the people you support. In this session, you will learn exactly how to work with these challenges so you can be productive, even when you’re pulled in a million different directions at once. In this session, you will learn:

  • Why planning is a critical part of time management—even if the plan isn’t followed
  • A simple two-part strategy to handle interruptions quickly and get back on track with your priorities
  • How to effectively manage expectations (your own and others), and why that’s an essential tool for time management  
  • How to work with the person or people you support to define clear parameters for assignments so you can prioritize everything on your plate
