A Guide to Training Your Virtual Assistant

A Guide to Training Your Virtual Assistant

Once you’ve hired your virtual assistant you will now need to train them and in order to do this you need to ensure that you:

  1. Document your processes either in written form or on video so that they have something to look back on.
  2. Delegate the tasks to your assistant in the order of importance. What are your pain points?
  3. Don’t delegate everything at once. Hand over tasks bit by bit and make sure that you do ongoing training so that your virtual assistant doesn’t feel overwhelmed.
  4. Have realistic expectations and keep in mind whether or not they’re dedicated full time to your practice or if they have other clients they are servicing too.
  5. Praise them often and celebrate the wins. Feedback is very important and helps with keeping up the motivation.
  6. Clarify what the goal is and let them know how they can contribute to the ‘mission’.
