Course description

Indispensable Assistant

The partnership between assistants and their leaders is both critical and not always easy to establish and maintain. In this program, assistants learn how to ensure their skills are used to their full potential, how to get clear with those with whom they work about priorities, and how to assertively and respectfully make requests of others.

Who should attend?

Consider this program if you know:

  • Communication between leaders and assistants sometimes breaks down or is strained.
  • Expectations and standards are unclear between the assistant and the person he or she supports.
  • Assistants and those whom they serve have very different ways of working – and they’d like to be more aligned.
  • Problem-solving falls on the shoulders of the assistant and he or she would like buy in from others.
  • Time management is a challenge because simple systems for getting the work done aren’t set up.
