Now that you have decided to partner with an administrative expert or virtual assistant, it is necessary for you to share your mission and vision before the delegating process begins. You can enjoy a great working relationship with your administrative expert even though it is of a virtual nature.
How? By ensuring that you establish proper communication guidelines from the start. State your needs and expectations clearly to your administrative expert or virtual assistant, so that you can both be on the same page.
In the same way that you clearly share your message with your clients, you need to communicate your goals, values and dreams with your administrative consultant. Here are a few questions you can ask yourself in order to create and share your message with your administrative expert who will be supporting your business goals.
Who Am I?
• What do I need to improve in order to run my business more efficiently?
• What is missing in my current business or personal life?
• What are the tasks I enjoy?
• What are the tasks I don’t enjoy?
What is my “Why” for being in business?
• What impact do I want to have on others?
• How do I want get my message out into the world?
Where am I now and where do I desire to be?
• What is my vision?
• What do I need to achieve my goals and objectives?
Having the answers to these questions will help you get clear on your message so that you can communicate this to your administrative expert or virtual assistant. This will help her to align herself to your goals and objectives. In this way your administrative expert can effectively develop strategies and methods to help you achieve your business dreams.
