"This was the first virtual training I've had the chance to participate in, and even with Zoom fatigue, I was never uninterested in the content. It was extremely relevant and engaging. I can only imagine how much more I would get out of it, had it been in person"

As an administrative professional, much is expected of you today. Good organization, management, and people skills are no longer an option -- they are an imperative. At this comprehensive program, you will participate in a significant learning experience with others who share the same responsibilities and face the same challenges.
Today's executive or administrative assistant must be a strategist, a coach, a diplomat and a politician!
At this powerful training event, you will discover the strengths and weaknesses of your individual behavioural style. You will substantially improve your ability to influence others, manage conflict and resolve team conflicts using emotionally intelligent approaches. You will also learn how to control better your time and reactions to events outside of your control. By developing the new organizational skills, you will get the best results in the least amount of time, juggle priorities and adjust to shifting demands with grace and clarity, thereby increasing harmony and a sense of accomplishment.
In short, you will learn to manage people, resources, and self!
