Why You Need To Move To The Next Level of PA Training

Many PAs are now neglecting their continuous professional development because senior managers take the view that PA training is a low priority, particularly in tough economic times.

The issue is that the modern Executive PA role is light years away from the secretarial role and should be treated as such. Today’s PAs are required to be managers – the boss’s right hand person in every sense of the word.

As a modern PA, having a good grasp of managerial-level skills and seeing yourself as a manager is the only way to remain relevant, effective and useful as an assistant. It is generally not possible to make this transition without attending Executive PA training.  However, Executive PA training comes in many shapes and sizes, and different courses are relevant for the particular developmental needs of individual PAs at a particular point in their professional development.

For example, the Pitman Training Executive PA Diploma provides an opportunity to develop solid PA skills to “super-secretary” level.

However, the Executive PA Masterclass will take your skills to another level, where it is assumed that you already possess the necessary skills and competencies to be a PA. The masterclass is a high-end course that will raise your game.

What You Will Learn

This course will teach you how to formulate a persuasive argument and then present your ideas to management.

It will teach you how to conduct a win-win negotiation.

It will also teach you holistics event management skills that you won’t find in a text book.

You will learn how to develop your own personal brand, which is an essential aspect of making the transition from efficient PA to effective Executive PA.

Understanding what your boss really needs from you is key to making this transition but understanding internet tools and how to use social media for business will give you new-found confidence.

Who Benefits From Your Training?

According to a survey of CEOs conducted in 2009 by the Association of Personal Assistants (APA) in conjunction with Monster, TotalJobs and Reed.co.uk., top executives attribute as much as 40% of their own productivity to their PA.

This is handy to know when you need to arm yourself with the facts in order to justify high-end Executive PA Training. The sad fact is that many PAs would like to make an impact in their job but feel discouraged because  of the underlying message that says “you’re not important”.

Why You Need to Raise Your Game

As is evident in the results of the survey mentioned above, PAs are worth significantly more than their salaries would suggest. They have earned the right to take their place at the front of the queue and demand an appropriate share of the training budget. Why not explain to your boss that even though you are highly efficient there is still room for improvement to take you from highly efficient to highly effective.  The PAs that remain relevant in today’s job market are the PAs that add value.
