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:
- Document your processes either in written form or on video so that they have something to look back on.
- Delegate the tasks to your assistant in the order of importance. What are your pain points?
- 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.
- 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.
- Praise them often and celebrate the wins. Feedback is very important and helps with keeping up the motivation.
- Clarify what the goal is and let them know how they can contribute to the ‘mission’.
