"Many administrative professionals are stymied by goal setting," says Karen Fritscher-Porter, publisher of The Effective Admin newsletter and website at . "And so are some of their bosses when it comes to helping them to set goals."

Often difficulty with setting goals for administrative professionals becomes apparent during a performance evaluation process. Both parties sometimes have "writer's block" when it comes time to complete that section called "goals for next year" (or something similar). One reason is that bosses use goals with all of their employees to measure job performance (and that's just one use of goals). But sometimes they think administrative assistants or executive assistants have hard-to-measure jobs or job aspects. Or the administrative professional believes that she or he repeats similar, sometimes even mundane, tasks year-after-year in her daily duties and she feels hard-pressed to set a "unique" goal.
