Inter-group discussions to share working experiences are also an important ingredient in the process. Skills are introduced and revisited at regular intervals throughout the training course to facilitate reinforcement and to help delegates remember them.

The instructor are always on hand for one-to-one discussions with delegates regarding any problems or confidential matters that they may wish to discuss. On offer, each day following lunch, will be an open session for 1 hour, by request, for individual or group discussion(s) on any additional subjects required or problems or issues that delegates may have or wish to discuss.

Organisational Impact

Delegates attending this training seminar will better appreciate the knowledge, skills and competencies required to fulfill their current and future job/role requirements more effectively. They will be exposed to, and will have the opportunity to practice, sets of competencies that are an essential contribution towards achieving business objectives in a cost effective manner. They will have a better understanding of other people’s needs, perspectives, and how they may support and work with them to the benefit of all. The organisation will see the benefits of integrating such fundamental behaviours towards the provision on an enhanced service and support to their line managers, colleagues and customers.

Our underlying philosophy is simple and is based upon the notion that people are an employer’s greatest and most expensive asset therefore our aim is to provide maximum return on investment. Often what differentiates the successful executive administrator is a deep understanding of people and human behaviour coupled to an ability to respond and react appropriately. The aim of this training seminar is to enable people to provide first class service both within the organisation and with external customers.

Personal Impact

Delegates will be exposed to a range of different proven techniques which the individual can tailor and modify to suit their own styles and organisational behaviours.
