Regardless of the industry you work in, the organization you work for, or the boss you have, as an administrative support professional, almost all of the tasks you perform on a daily basis require, in some way, interaction with others.

Specifically, you will be introduced to the benefits of being a supportive colleague, including some best practices for doing so.

Finally, the course covers some techniques to help you deal with criticism, including how to react to and act on it constructively.
