IAAP Education Event: Excellence in Action

Co-hosted by the IAAP Booz Allen Hamilton and Black-Eyed Susan Chapters on April 26, 2014

Summarized by Julie D. Long, CAP, PACE

Session #1: Leadership Forum with Krissy Anderson, CAP-OM; Valerie Charter, CAP-OM; Jana DiCarlo; and B.J. Parrish, CAP-OM and facilitated by Regina White.

The forum discussed four topics: Administrative Professional's Changing Roles; Relationships and Partnerships; Staying Relevant; and Confidentiality. First, Jana DiCarlo spoke on the Administrative Professional's Changing Roles and Career Development. DiCarlo began by looking at the career development network of an athlete. An athlete's career development network may include a speech expert, image consultant, etc. The career development network of an administrative professional may include former co-workers, IAAP chapter members, mentors, etc. DiCarlo mentioned that "sometimes to get somewhere is to move."

Second, Krissy Anderson, CAP-OM spoke on Relationships and Partnerships. Anderson emphasized "continuity" as an administrative professional.

Next, B.J. Parrish, CAP-OM spoke on Staying Relevant. Parrish began with looking back in the administrative world. In the 1960s, the three prominent careers for women were teacher, nurse, and secretary. We have evolved from typewriters to PCs to laptops to tablets. Because of technology the typical work day has changed from 9-5 to 24/7. With the changes in the work environment, we must remain relevant. However, many of us do not stay relevant because of fear (false evidence appearing real). Two of our biggest challenges are social media and the latest software. By a show of hands, a majority of attendees use Linkedin. As Parrish mentioned other social media such as Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, etc., the number of raised hands decreased.

Parrish concluded with the four things you will never learn in your comfort zone:

  1. The depth of your talent
  2. The reach of your potential
  3. The reward of your risk
  4. The power of your dreams

Lastly, Valerie Charter, CAP-OM discussed confidentiality. Charter outlined the major myths of confidentiality in the workplace:

  1. No one sees what anyone is doing
  2. It is not my concern
  3. It is not my job
  4. I don't trust my boss to tell him/her what is going on

Session #2 OneNote by Jeffrey Layne, CPA, Associate Professor at Anne Arundel Community College.

Layne gave us brief overview of Microsoft OneNote. One feature that brought lots of "ahhs" was the fact that OneNote automatically saves every keystroke as soon as you make them.

Session #3 Professional and Mentoring by Keemani Henry and Nancy S. Lindell, CAP-OM. Henry began her presentation with a definition of professionalism.

Professionalism is the skill, good judgment and polite behavior that is expected from a person who is trained to do a job well. A professional is someone who exhibits a courteous, conscientious and generally business-like manner in the workplace. Several keywords that describe professionalism are competence, reliability, honesty, development, supporting others, being positive, focus, integrity, and listen. 

Next, Henry outlined how to find a mentor and how to become a mentor.

How to find a mentor?

  1. Evaluate your needs
  2. Select mentor(s)
  3. Prepare for conversation
  4. Build the relationship

How do I become a mentor?

  1. Understand the role of a mentor
  2. Prepare for conversation
  3. Build the relationship

Henry's tips for successful mentoring are connecting, listening, talking, and developing.

She mentioned that the top two reasons mentoring fails is lack of commitment and misaligned expectations.

To clarify, the slides were less than 40 but advertised in pictures with some text to explain the technology that an AP handles!
