A Note From Chrissy
As the facilitator of the ELEVATE Admins program, my role is multi-faceted. I am trained and experienced in this field, and I take my role seriously.
My role is to:
- Get to the heart of the matter quickly
- Keep the discussion focused, respectful and positive
- Keep the program moving forward to achieve the stated goals
- Provide expertise and accountability for results
- Act as an unbiased third-party
How I’m Different
I know you have choices. There are a handful other “admin training” programs out there; it’s true. Not many, however. This is a very niche topic. Few people recognize the importance of this critical role and even fewer understand how to effectively coach and train these professionals. But I’m certainly not the ONLY person offering a program for admins. I am, however, very different from the others. Here are just a few of the things that I believe make me and my program a better choice:
- I’ve been in THEIR shoes. As a former executive assistant, I know exactly what your administrative professionals do on a daily basis, and I have a deep appreciation for the role. That shows in everything I do. It allows me to create a very strong bond with your team quickly.
- I’ve been in YOUR shoes. As a small business owner, I know what it means to invest in training and support like this for your team. I know that getting a return on your investment is essential. I know the importance of making the right decisions, and I offer the highest value to ensure your dollars are well spent.
- I offer a unique point-of-view that is unlike anyone else out there. As a trained and experienced life coach, career coach, and business leader, I pride myself on taking a holistic perspective. This means I look at the whole person, the whole entity, the whole team and the whole business. I don’t wear blinders. I am constantly looking at the big picture and finding ways to improve how the separate parts work together.
I look forward to getting to know you, your administrate team, and your organization. Thank you for your interest in the ELEVATE Admins program.
