The role of Executive Assistant now routinely includes the leadership of people, relationships, projects, and teams. This means that leading, influencing and managing power dynamics are now core competencies for all effective Executive Assistants.
However, as commented in a Harvard Business Review article, “becoming a leader involves much more than being put into a leadership role, acquiring new skills, and adapting one’s style to the requirements of that role. It involves a fundamental identity shift.”
In this new workshop, “Workplace Power and the Executive Assistant” you will explore the types of power and sources of influence held by Executive Assistants. You’ll learn tools for influencing and persuading in your role as an Executive Assistant. You’ll also discuss how to overcome the specific challenges faced by women in or aspiring to leadership roles. The aim of the workshop is to create a shift in thinking, enabling delegates to identify with their leadership, personal power, and influence.
The workshop is for Executive Assistants wishing to build personal credibility and influence, so they can lead and motivate people, work effectively within teams and manage diverse relationships and responsibilities – increasing their overall contribution to the organisation.
A refreshing and inspiring program that uses original and stimulating ideas, this workshop will be valuable for Executive Assistants at all levels.
