From Admin to Strategic Partner with Rhonda Scharf

The days of taking dictation, personal assistance for each boss, and using an old-fashioned typewriter ended in the 70s. The secretary is gone. From secretary, we moved to administrative assistant, executive assistant, personal assistant, and roles in which we were supporting professionals. We supported departments, executives, and operations. We ensured that business moved forward by taking care of the little details that no one noticed such as scheduling, travel, expenses, and generally made life a lot easier for others.


And now, times have changed, and we are now “Strategic Partners.” We no longer support the function of the business or the executive. We work in conjunction with the department, the executive, or the business. We are autonomous. And we are far more visible than we have ever been in the past. We are no longer invisible (or we should not be invisible); we are very much a part of the success of the department, executive, or company.


Working as a strategic partner requires a mind shift in terms of how we approach our profession.

This workshop is going to pull back the curtain to see what is required to be a Strategic Partner. In open, honest, and transparent conversations, we will delve into:

  • What does it mean to be a Strategic Partner? How is that different from Assistant?
  • What attributes do I need to have and what do I need to improve?
  • Communication skills, styles, and preferences. How will this impact my partnership and how I flex my styles?
  • Perform a SWOT analysis on what is working, and what isn’t (and set goals to mark improvements)
  • Understanding attitudes and behaviors and dealing with different perceptions
  • Dealing with interpersonal conflict professionally


Develop the leadership qualities you need and discover how to demonstrate them daily.

This workshop will open your eyes to your new future and successes! Come ready to share, to learn, and above all, move into the future!
