Enhancing performance

The support provided by an administrative professional is vital to any organisation’s ability to achieve its goals and objectives. 

Today, most senior managers expect administative professionals to have leadership and management skills in order to set their own administrative priorities. In addition, they must have skills to manage all contacts, create, store and retrieve documents, plus a broad variety of other administrative skills. To do all of this successfully, they need to have strategic insight and be able to innovate better processes. At the same time, they must be tactical, process-oriented, and driven toward continuous improvement. This comprehensive seminar gives delegates a wide range of skills to help them handle any work challenge with greater confidence and effectiveness. Delegates will not only leave with an action plan of best practices to apply immediately on the job, but have a fun filled day doing so.


Delegates attending this workshop will be able to:

  • Manage changing roles and responsibilities whether working with bosses, peers, team members or customers
  • Meet dynamic work expectations by expanding their proactive capabilities 
  • Clearly and confidently communicate and negotiate to manage conflicts and achieve results 
  • Apply emotional intelligence and effective listening practices to their jobs 
  • Use strategic diplomacy to handle office politics, difficult people and demanding situations
