ABOUT THIS CIRCLE
The focus of E.R.T. (Excellence Reinforcement Team) is on fostering distinction among support staff, in turn reinforcing excellence in the areas in which we work. Thomas Aquinas said, “The test of the artist does not lie in the will with which he goes to work, but in the excellence of the work he produces.” We have the choice every morning to not only put in a day’s work, but also to practice the art of administration—to be the cog that turns the wheel of our organization, driving it ever forward.
There will be challenges and sometimes even barriers to using our skills and gifts to further the vision and mission, but together we can find our individual paths to success and achieve excellence. We can learn to advance our own unique situations, and be the right hand on whom our leaders know they can depend.
MY REASON FOR LEADING A CIRCLE
Life has never been dull for me and I have been given the opportunity to experience what leaders from diverse industries come to need and expect in an assistant. These experiences lend themselves as great conversation starters! Also, having led groups in other arenas, I have come to place great value on what people can achieve when they put their heads together. So let’s put our heads together and help each other achieve greatness!
TOPICS MAY INCLUDE: Goal Setting, How to Partner with Your Leader, Taking Ownership, How to Navigate Personalities, Risk Taking, and Assertiveness.
