Leadership for Assistants

Leadership for Assistants

There is hardly any other profession that requires more subtle leadership skills than the assistant. Above-average commitment, entrepreneurial thinking and high social competence are important prerequisites for your job. In addition, as a top-level assistant, you are expected to lead with discretion and with natural but not managerial authority.

What does effective leadership mean for you as an assistant? Where is the fine line between office support and effective leadership assistance? How do you see yourself, your role and what is the other people’s perception of you?

Take on your leadership role as an assistant deliberately and consciously. In our seminar we talk about various leadership styles, their characteristics and elements: presence, charisma and the interaction of verbal and nonverbal communication through the appropriate use of body, voice and posture. Practical exercises from the classical drama training and improvisation techniques help you to understand your role in the corporate context and to actively shape it.

In the protected environment of a small group, we will give you ample space to try out various action alternatives. We accompany you with the camera throughout the seminar, giving you the opportunity to get yourself a picture of the effectiveness of your actions. You will receive professional feedback as well as individual recommendations from our trainers on how to further improve your appearance, your impact and your professional demeanor.
