There is no special talent required to do what I do and there are many capable of doing it. The first requirement is an ability to communicate with people, including listening skills. The second requirement is common sense. Unfortunately that can't be learned or purchased - you either have it or you don't. The third requirement is an interest in people.

Administrative?
Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.
