EPAA Training Course – People Management for EAs

This intensive one-day programme has been designed for Executive and Personal Assistants undertaking people management activities.

To be a great people manager takes skill, determination and a willingness on your part to offer a fantastic and inspiring supervisory service.

Stepping into an EA/PA role which includes managing people can be tough and this one-day programme directly recognises and works on this aspect of the role.

When leading a team, it is your duty to know how to get the best out of them, working cohesively, while inspiring and empowering them to be the best they can be. It’s no secret that this in turn leads to higher productivity and a happier workforce!

According to research carried out, ineffective people management costs the UK over £19 billion in lost working hours per year and only one in five respondents claimed they had management training.

The role of people manager/supervisor/team leader will only likely increase for many Executive and Personal Assistants. With our programme you can expect practical exercises, theory and group discussions on what it takes to be a great People Manager.

We will provide delegates with the key components and lots of resources in order to foster a fantastic, healthy and productive team environment, whether that is managing one person or a team of people.

  • leadership vs management
  • identifying your leadership style
  • key management techniques
  • dealing with group dynamics & conflict management
  • top tips on creating a productive workplace and team environment (employee engagement & wellbeing)
  • providing professional feedback in a constructive way
