Create a successful mindset for your Assistant career
Outstanding Assistants are indispensable in their roles. Their mindset is such that they quickly rise to the top of their organisation and support the growth of the business.
Often Assistants work with demanding Executives and senior members of staff, which means Assistants require a set of skills and characteristics to cope in high-pressured environments
Assistants often work solely with their Executives and don’t feel part of a team, which can be isolating.
If the Assistant is part of a team, often their colleagues don’t understand the value the Assistant brings to the organisation, they don’t understand the role, or they try to undermine the Assistant by bypassing them entirely so that they can gain access to the Executive.
It can be incredibly frustrating for Assistants to navigate these challenges while also dealing with the usual office politics and cultural differences.
On this course we help Assistants develop a mindset that can cope with the challenges in the role and learn how to be a successful Executive Assistant. There is a lot of ground to cover! We’ll traverse these topics across our in-depth guides, events, online courses, articles, and more.
What to expect from The Assistant Mindset Course - Level Two
In this course we have stepped it up a gear. We have collated content that includes sessions by Executive Coaches. We decided to treat our students, not just as people who work alongside business leaders, but treat them as dynamic business leaders in their own right! If you don’t feel like this already, we want you to feel like a business leader at the end of this course.
