The Modern-Day Assistant as a Strategic Business Partner

The most successful businesses understand how to use their Assistants as strategic business partners. The days of Assistants just typing and answering phones are over. The American Society of Administrative Professionals has demonstrated that Assistants are the new middle management. Now, they are more likely to be knee deep in project management, strategic research, reports & financial forecasts. Increasingly, Executives free up their time by using Assistants to fill the gaps where their weaknesses lie. This course will train Assistants in the new skill sets necessary to ensure businesses are getting the best from their support and adding value to the company’s bottom line.

Turning 'Theory' into 'Practice'?

We have created a program that will introduce you to the skills, tools and the methodologies essential to the successful planning and controlling of projects. Of particular focus will be the development of your own people management and interpersonal skills required to deliver performance on projects at all levels. The course is driven by practical experience and your needs, giving you the opportunity to immediately apply your new understandings and skills to your own projects.
