For me, this new role has been an excellent learning experience.

Here are some ways I have found can help: The web is a wonderful tool for sharing. I have been on some interactive sites where assistants ask questions and get answers and I learn from them as I have some of the same questions.

Try sharing your ideas and learning from the experiences of others.
