Career Tip #1: Be Kind ♥
Greetings, Ninja!

Every year during Admin Week, we do our darndest to lure you from your day-to-day just long enough to enrich you with collaborative learning experiences, shower you with indulgent gifts, and fill your soul with pride — for the Admin community and your own invaluable work.

This year, after you know what… we declared that Admin Week 2020 was no longer the time for career development (we’ve all been in hyper learning mode for weeks!) — we only wanted to have fun, fun, fun.

But here’s the funny thing: we did learn a lot.

  • We learned how to reimagine Admin Week for a remote workforce with open minds and total transparency — in just six weeks.
  • Thousands of participating Ninjas from 49 states (Wyoming, give us a call!) taught us that “distance” and “connection” aren’t mutually exclusive.
  • We observed our 2020 All-Stars surpassing their accolades, wowing us with their flexibility, collaboration, and resourcefulness, too.
  • We discovered that giving away over 35 prizes in one day is just as crazy as it sounds. But when you have the kind of ride-or-die vendor partners we do — anything is possible.

And most of all, we learned — from every excited email, celebratory comment, and positive social media interaction — that Ninjas show up for each other. Always. No matter what.

Ninjas are amazing. (Admin Week didn’t teach us that; we’ve known all along.)
