For 10 years we have been talking about the changes necessary to shape the role into what so many of you have wanted it to be. We are on the cusp of changing the working lives of the half a billion of you who work in this profession, but only you can do it.
The Global Skills Matrix from the World Administrators Alliance provides the tools for you to articulate your value in a way that you may have been unable to do before. It provides a framework that can be used to highlight what you bring to the table, enabling you to be recognised not only for the support role you play but for the impact you have as an individual. You MUST take this opportunity to share the information with your business.
We are happy to support and even to have conversations with HR or your board, where you deem it necessary, but YOU need to share this document with your businesses and networks. We would love to hear your stories as you begin this journey. Please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you need support and how you are getting on.
