Well, there is one reason why you hired your Virtual Assistant (VA) and that was to seek his help in creating a better business. Once in awhile it is good, if not better, to be able to give them a pat on the back for their hard work. But if compliments do not come easy for you, then let us help you out. Virtual Assistants are innately good with the following:

People skills. Your virtual assistant is there to help you get the appointments you need. Their negotiation skills are definitely working if your calendar is always full. It pays to have someone who is relational and can make the necessary adjustments when needed.

Unbelievable organization. Everything from reports to keeping your calendar is essential in the life of a virtual assistant. You never really learn o appreciate their craft at multi-tasking until you are graced by a reminder and your reports are constantly well-done. Notice how all your e-mails are conveniently answered and how much time it must take him to accomplish all tasks in a day. Organization is the key and this is one of your V.A.’s top strengths.

Accountability. An assistant works as your go-to guy. He’s the one your partners contact to get to you, and proper representation is what is essential. Your Virtual Assistant is good at accountability and that’s why he’s in the forefront answering your clients and contacting your leads.

Virtual Assistants only have so many hours in a day to accomplish the tasks you ask of them. And when you’re miles apart, this is a good way to remind yourself that you made the right choice. Your virtual assistant is talented and you reap the rewards. If you aren’t satisfied with their service though, then consider these three traits when selecting the next one.
