Work Smarter Not Harder

You’ve probably heard the popular saying“work smarter and not harder” countless times. Yet we are all probably guilty of falling into this trap over and over again, as we get pulled in a million different directions and battle to prioritise our workload and systematically work through it. So does that mean that we’re always going to be working ourselves to the point of breakdown?

Definitely not! The most successful administrative professionals know how to “work smart” and have control of their work (including their boss) and their personal lives. Instead of working yourself to a standstill and increasing your odds of having a burnout, ask yourself “how can I control my work instead of it controlling me?”

CBM Training has created the perfect platform for administrators to transform from “hard workers” into “smart workers”. Our annual Professional Administrators Conference of South Africa (PACSA) has helped numerous administrative professionals across Southern Africa to develop professionally as well as in their personal lives.

Now in its 16th year, past attendees often refer to PACSA as the “Secretaries Event of the Year” – and for good reason!  Not only will you gain a wealth of valuable information and skills, but you are also guaranteed to have loads of fun and get spoilt with delicious meals, free gifts and sponsored prizes!
