Elevate’s Leadership Skills for Administrative Professionals will help administrative assistants in their everyday performance in an office environment. In the modern workplace, administrative professionals are asked to do much more than answer phone calls. To survive (and thrive) administrative professionals require a very specific set of skills to complete the daily tasks that keep companies running smoothly. Communication, problem-solving, and priority setting are paramount skills that any assistant must-have. We’ll show you how to sharpen your skills with advanced training that goes beyond typical job functions. Participants will identify productivity pay-offs and priorities, and build better relationships with their peers as well as those to whom they report. Participants will develop strategies to handle any crisis, customer, or task, juggle a hectic workload, effective time management, deal with difficult people, and negotiate with vendors. Additionally, participants will learn how to identify opportunities for delegation within their scope of authority.

Writing at the Executive Level

Organizations greatly benefit from having a professional cadre who can produce clear, well-organized, grammatically correct documents of the work they perform. Today’s professionals are expected to communicate effectively, and writing plays a vital role in how one’s work is presented to colleagues, subordinates, and the community as a whole. This course is designed to teach participants how the tools needed to complement their reader’s level of understanding, methods of getting past writer’s block, critical thinking skills to write effective documents, and much more.

Presence with a Purpose

Successful leaders can connect authentically, build confidence in others, and inspire and motivate people into action. Leaders with purpose stay focused and committed to leading through the myriad of everyday organizational challenges. This workshop will help leaders become more confident, composed, and credible, able to connect authentically with the thought and feelings of their team to motivate and inspire them toward a desired outcome.

Leading with Mental Health Awareness

Talking about mental health in the workplace isn’t easy. Given the mental health statistics in the U.S. and our experience with the pandemic, we know these  discussions are critical. Supporting mental health in the workplace goes beyond offering programs and apps. Leaders play a crucial role in setting the tone and sending the message that our emotional wellness is just as important as our physical wellness. This training will help leaders recognize the significance of their role in creating a work environment that can positively or negatively impact their employees’ overall physical and mental health.

Executive Presence & Personal Brand

Some people immediately command attention and respect when they walk into a room. Do you have that kind of presence? If not, is it something that you would like to develop? This training will help you do just that by building your credibility, improving your personal appearance, honing your networking skills, and enhancing your ability to communicate effectively.
