"That's What Being An Assistant Is All About."

by | Jul 27, 2015 | Articles For Assistants | 11 comments

Gatekeepers ensuring their bosses aren’t troubled,

Sorting out plans that have got all muddled.

Booking that last minute trip, no worry,

Typing up documents required in a hurry.

That’s what being an Assistant is all about.  

 Planning this and sorting that,

Greeting everyone with friendly chat.

To avoid that risk, thinking ahead,

Booking the restaurant so clients are fed.

That’s what being an Assistant is all about.  

Skilled in Office and much much more,

Long hours on the keyboard ’till your fingers are sore.

Taking exams to develop and grow,

A thirst for knowledge is needed, you know.

That’s what being an Assistant is all about.  

 There’s so much more than technical ability,

Business and people skills are required and are key,

Strategy, planning, creative negotiation,

Time-keeping, research plus excellent communication.

That’s what being an Assistant is all about.  

As part of a team or working alone,

Often you think, “I need a clone!”

You knuckle down and cause no fuss,

But under your breath you’ll sometimes cuss!

That’s what being an Assistant is all about.  

Trustworthy, loyal, honest and committed,

Making tough decisions when they are needed.

Using initiative to get the solution that’s right,

Keeping eyes on the budget when things are tight.

That’s what being an Assistant is all about.  

Thanks and praise maybe long overdue,

Because the results achieved are expected of you,

Probably knowing much more than a lot,

About corporate plans and topics so hot.

That’s what being an Assistant is all about.  

From the shoulders of others, you unburden the load,

You really are worth your weight in gold.

Long gone are the days of, “You’re just the typist”,

When you’re not around, you really are missed.

That’s what being an Assistant is all about.  

So cometh the challenge, cometh the hour,

Unleash your awesome Assistant’s power.

To make the world’s offices much better places,

And see the appreciation of thanks on others’ faces.

That’s what being an Assistant is all about. 

You’ll never be alone with your troubles or fears,

With your supportive communities and helpful peers.

So Speak Up, be proud and let everyone know,

From the newest of colleagues to the CEO.

 That’s what being an Assistant is all about.
