Partnering with your manager

Event Details

    Amended outline

    Develop a trusting partnership with your manager or multiple managers by taking on more responsibility, improving your business acumen and delivering excellent assistant support.

    As Executive Assistants, Personal Assistants and Administration professionals today are more closely involved with managers in decision making and problem solving at work, it's not surprising that you might find yourself increasingly called upon to communicate, plan, solve problems and make decisions on behalf of your manager. 

    Designed to enhance and improve your ability to support your managers and their position, you'll understand and learn techniques to be more effective at anticipating your managers’ needs, deal with prickly personalities, use your influence, gain confidence, build trust and be more empowered to proactively manage situations that will impact on your manager.
