Workshop for executive assistants to the C-suite and board coordinators

Oct. 6, Oct. 12, Oct. 19, Oct. 26 and Nov. 2

Join HANYS for our Workshop for Executive Assistants to the C-Suite and Board Coordinators, a five-part virtual series held throughout October with our closing session in November.

This year’s skill-building sessions:

KEYNOTE SESSION: Optimize your energy in an ever-changing world | Thursday, Oct. 6, 3 – 4 p.m.

Allison Kinnear, Empowerment Coach, Speaker and Instructor

Our world is changing in unpredictable ways. How do you plan for the future when there's so much uncertainty? As executive assistants and board coordinators in hospitals, you are regularly in a changing environment with unknown emergencies. This session is about building the mental and emotional resilience to successfully navigate whatever comes next.

During this keynote session, you'll learn how to:

  • stay centered and unworried, even amidst changing circumstances;
  • use self-care practices to keep you nurtured and energized in any situation;
  • understand and flex in “VUCA” environments (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity); and
  • increase your capacity for mindfulness, resilience and resourcefulness, therefore increasing your energy and focus.

Executives and assistants working as strategic partners | Wednesday, Oct. 12, 3 – 4 p.m.

Joan Burge, Founder & CEO, Office Dynamics International

Executives and assistants depend on each other to achieve results in our high-pressured work environment more so than ever before. Changes in administrative responsibilities, technological advances, healthcare moving at Mach speed and assistants supporting more than one executive make building strategic partnerships critical for team success.

The goal of building a strategic partnership is to maximize effectiveness through synergy — meaning that together you achieve even more than you would independently, experiencing greater success and fewer obstacles in the process.

During this session, you'll learn:

  • the three stages of executive and assistant team growth;
  • what “strategic” partnership means and why it matters;
  • how to engage in the scope of your executive’s work;
  • how to initiate purposeful communication through “Human Moments;” and
  • how to overcome partnership problems in a post-pandemic world.

What healthcare administrative professionals need to know about the NY Not-For-Profit Corporation Law | Wednesday, Oct. 19, 3 – 4 p.m.

Tracey Brooks, General Counsel; Mia Wolfe, Associate, Shenker, Russo & Clark

As executive assistants and board coordinators, you are often the liaison between your hospital and the board of directors. In this role, it is important to understand relevant areas of New York’s Not-For-Profit Corporation Law and how it affects boards. This workshop will ensure you are aware of changes in the law and review best practices for your board.

During this session, attendees will learn:

  • what has changed in New York laws that you need to know about;
  • how best to communicate with and keep the board, and its committees, moving forward to be productive for the organization;
  • the conflicts board members need to disclose; and
  • your record-keeping responsibilities.

Microsoft Excel for healthcare administrative professionals | Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2:30 – 4 p.m.

Colleen McVeigh, Senior Healthcare Informatics Analyst, HANYS

This interactive virtual training is designed exclusively for executive assistants and will provide useful tips to enhance your Microsoft Excel skills in this setting. Practical, real-life examples of Excel’s role in healthcare data will be provided. Participants will discover how to become more efficient while learning to aggregate, analyze and present data.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • navigate the Excel interface as well as enter, manipulate and format data;
  • use formulas, functions and pivot tables;
  • apply data cleaning techniques (auto fill, flash fill, find and replace, formatting); and
  • present data in user-friendly ways, including basic visualizations for tracking expense reports, contracts and meeting attendance.

Becoming the renaissance admin | Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2:30 – 4 p.m.

Marie Herman, CAP, OM, ACS, MOSM, founder, MRH Enterprises LLC

It’s all too easy to feel pigeon holed into your role, limited by the perceptions of others. While they may be convinced that we have a certain set of skills and know our potential, in truth, we just may be able to surprise them with what we are capable of. Discover how you can bring new perspectives to your position to enhance your value and encourage your employer to consider your skills in a new light.

We'll discuss critical thinking skills and explore logical ways to bring value to your role, as well as how to get recognition for that value. You'll get a better understanding of the different perspectives you can use to problem solve and become a more valued employee in the process.

During this session, attendees will learn:

  • why broadening our perspective will create new impressions in the workplace;
  • how to see the bigger picture of your role in your company;
  • what you can do to develop your role in ways that excite and challenge you; and
  • how you can use your newfound skills to ensure that you stay relevant in the workplace and adapt amid new technology and automation.

Recordings of all sessions will be made available to registrants.
