Why is Executive and Personal Assistant job and career development so crucial?

We have spent many years talking with, training and learning from all levels of Assistants. One of the critical things we have found is that mindset, career and personal development is incredibly important to success. It could be the most important thing.

You can’t work as a high-level Assistant without doing the work on yourself too. This is harder said than done for Assistants. They are so busy working to support those around them; they often don’t find the time to develop their own career plans, goals or objectives.

This has to change.

The stakes are too high for Assistants to fall back on their administrative skills. With the introduction of Artificial Intelligence and automation, we have to showcase their talents and demonstrate their worth through Executive and Personal Assistant job and career development.

You and your career have to be centre stage. We will show you how.
