The new COVID-19 world environment also creates its own unique challenges affecting almost all the responsibilities of the professional administrator. This interactive training tackles both the practical know-how you need to give you an edge in a busy multi-faceted role, as well as the mind-set, confidence and calmness to manage yourself, your work and your working relationships no matter what the challenges.
