How do I learn more about my job when I am the boss? And How do I get the employees to respond better to me?
I am a Office Manager for a small company, recently we have grown from 8-10 employees to 26. How do I get more knowledge on what I have to do and things that will help me get through the day and actually finish a project? I love my job but I have only been doing it for 1 year and I know I have so much more to learn. Any sugguestions on how or where to go? I am really good at creating ideas but because I am so young its hard to impliment them because I am 1/3 the age the men are that I am trying to help "manage". What can I do?
