About this Event

Lessons from the Org Chart: Honing Your Influence and Leadership Skills - 60 minutes

You’ve established yourself as an assistant with multiple competencies. You're adept at executing others’ priorities. Given your job title, though, people won’t necessarily associate your role with leadership or authority.

You can positively impact these perceptions. You can gain recognition and respect by honing your influence and communication style. To do so, you need to think beyond the traditional confines of the role. Shelagh spent much of her career working alongside senior executives, and we're going to look at how you can learn from and adapt some practices of people at higher levels on the organizational chart.

This session will provide you insights on healthy self-promotion, increasing your visibility and enhancing your professional reputation. These are all learned skills, and they’re not solely for extroverts. We'll look at communication styles, and qualities associated with leadership.

Key learning points

1. Emotional intelligence and self-promotion

2. Establishing visibility and recognition

3. Communicating like a leader

About your trainer

Invest in your career with someone who presents on current best practices

Shelagh is trusted and respected by assistants around the globe. She has been publishing her Exceptional EA website since 2013, and writes for other publications. An in-demand trainer, Shelagh works with conference organisers, professional associations, government bodies, higher education and businesses, including corporations such as the NBA.

Like many, Shelagh's 2020 travel plans have taken a hit. Arrangements to deliver training in person in a few countries have been postponed, and so Shelagh is adapting with you in making her training presentations available via live webinars. This is one in a series of webinars designed to help you navigate new norms that are still forming.

Registration fee

The fee for each webinar in this pandemic series is $55 US. Depending on currency fluctuation rates, that's approximately £44, or €50.

Canadian residents registering for this webinar will see that GST of $3.52 CAD is included in the cost.

What's included in this registration fee?

This is a live, 60-minute webinar that Shelagh will present via GoToWebinar. You'll receive your unique access link via a GoToWebinar email within 24 hours of registration.

After the webinar, Shelagh will email you a certificate of attendance that will come in handy for tracking and showcasing your professional development.

You'll also have access to a recording of the webinar for 30 days post-event. This can come in handy if you’d like to review a concept, and if time zones or people throw your schedule for a loop the day of a webinar.
