Productivity Hacks for EAs - Lunch & Learn Session

Tuesday 12th December 2023, 12pm-1pm

We are experiencing increasing demand for Executive Assistant specific training as our EA network are finding themselves busier than ever! To support them with this, and due to popular demand, we are running a bitesize EA training course on Tuesday 12th December from 12-1pm.

87% of EA’s say that they don’t receive enough or as relevant L&D compared to those they support and this can mean performance plateaus or worse, these key communities feel less valued! This course is a powerful way to offer your EA’s support in a lunch and learn format, from the comfort of their own desks and ensure they feel supported, valued, motivated and engaged.

During this 60 minute online programme Carly will be covering

  • Manage your time and energy to create more bandwidth and happiness    
  • Tangible ways to build in resilience to your working day   
  • Tackling difficult conversations
  • Your Personal Brand as an EA

Cost: £49.99

I cannot thank you enough for your time, patience and coaching last week. I felt the training was invaluable and has given me the confidence and skills to manage my team more effectively, and in line with the company’s strategic goals.

Delegate, Management Basics Course, July 2023

Carly was fantastic as there was never any judgement so I felt I could speak openly and honestly. Both days I left feeling more confident to deal with challenging situations and excited to start implementing new processes. The training was invaluable and I am so grateful for Carly’s time and the follow up coaching sessions to come.
