Administrative managers and assistants are invaluable members of the organisation team. They are charged with overseeing and coordinating the day to day operations of a business. Thanks to the advent of communication technology, the skills these assistants require have become diversified, and the ability to multitask and juggle several different instructions at once have become essential. Other qualities needed by these members include excellent communication skills, a polished appearance, and good interpersonal instincts. This course tackles all these behavioral skills while focusing on areas related to the use of technology to get things done effectively and successfully.
