You and Your Career

Why is Executive and Personal Assistant job and career development so crucial for success in the Executive and Personal Assistant role?

We have spent many years 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 yourself. 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.
