Support for Supporters (LA)
The position of Administrative Assistant to the head of school or division head is a unique, complicated, and demanding one, requiring a high degree of professionalism as well as a complex combination of exceptional interpersonal skills, technology know-how, and the ability to manage and track several projects and events simultaneously. Because the position requires maintaining a high level of confidentiality, those in it can feel particularly isolated from others in the school. In response to requests from member schools, this program offers a small, confidential, and welcoming environment designed to foster connection, learning, support, and dialogue with peers who share similar experiences and challenges.
Questions we will investigate:
How can I best manage my time while dealing with constant interruptions and lack of privacy?
How can I advocate for myself?
How do I navigate difficult conversations with difficult people?
What resources are available to me?
Take advantage of this opportunity to share your wealth of knowledge and connect with peers that can offer ongoing support.
