Hope and Change- And not just from Barack

Hope and Change were the themes in Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. And being fairly admin-centric in my thinking, I believe them to be completely applicable to the average day of any admin.


We hope the copier doesn’t crap out. We hope we get to work on time. We hope our executive has enough time between appointments because traffic in the city can be brutal. We hope we are meeting our professional development goals. We hope to complete the project, the letter, the mailing, etc.. on time and on budget. We hope we’re remaining competitive by taking courses or reading the very latest best practices for admins. We hope our boss notices our hard work and conscientious efforts. We hope it is reflected in our paycheck. (smile!)


Companies change all the time. Companies change addresses. Change in supervisors. Change in job responsiblities. Change in deadline dates. Changes requested from our clients, our supervisors, our board members. Change in the direction of the organization. Change in the goals of the organization. Change in the bottom line of the organization. Change for the better in the organization. Change in management styles. Change in management theories. Change in financial practices. Change in tradeshow giveaways. Change in attendance at meetings.

You get the idea.

So.. in the spirit of the recent election of the next President of the United States (POTUS).. know that hope and change are eternal… in our country and in our workplace.
