To function as an administrative support person as an Executive Secretary or PA of an Executive Manager in a dynamic, global environment requires a comprehensive portfolio of knowledge, skills, and behavior. To achieve functional excellence therefore demands management of the internal and external boundaries that affect the emotional, relational, and performance aspects of your role. This course delivers on all three.

There is an interdependence between a secretary’s performance and a manager’s collaboration and communication. It is strongly recommended that the manager(s) complete the Needs Development Analysis prior to the secretary attending. This targets the training, serves as a valuable post-training integration of learning, as well as a performance evaluation assessment. The return on investment is optimised.
