Training and consulting

Play the cel­lo: On the instru­ment, the fin­gers of the left hand and the right arm coope­ra­te to crea­te a uni­que melo­dy from indi­vi­dual notes. What a won­der­ful meta­phor for working toge­ther in the team “Management – Assistant”.


“Take res­pon­si­bi­li­ty proac­tive­ly, deve­lop com­pe­ten­ce, live your strengths and talents, remo­ve your bar­riers and shape your own cont­ri­bu­ti­on.” is my gui­de­li­ne for my work with and for manage­ment assis­tants. I teach this in trai­nings, semi­nars, work­shops and cour­ses. In a safe and open-minded learning envi­ron­ment each par­ti­ci­pant can link theo­ry and prac­tice, in order to sustainab­ly inte­gra­te new insights and tools. What counts after all is the trans­fer to one’s own dai­ly work life and the deve­lop­ment and expan­si­on of per­so­nal pro­fes­sio­na­lism.



My appeal to manage­ment assis­tants:

What moves your boss also moves you.
You can make your own cont­ri­bu­ti­on to achie­ving the orga­niza­t­io­nal goals. Experience and com­pe­ten­ce are import­ant ingre­dients. Just as import­ant is the under­stan­ding and know­led­ge of the­se goals and management’s prio­ri­ties. This will enable you to par­ti­ci­pa­te, to anti­ci­pa­te, to initia­te, to set your own (deri­ved) prio­ri­ties and to offer effec­tive manage­ment sup­port.

Your role is more than your job descrip­ti­on.
In order to work effec­tive­ly in the team Superior – Assistant, you need more than to know how to lead your secre­ta­ri­at. What cont­ri­bu­ti­on can you make to achie­ve the goals? How can you ask the right ques­ti­ons and set the right prio­ri­ties? Design your per­so­nal added value through com­pe­ten­ce, awa­ren­ess, goal ori­en­ta­ti­on, fle­xi­bi­li­ty and initia­ti­ve, in the con­text of your posi­ti­on. Use your talents and inte­rests.

Change is omni­pre­sent: Recognize it as an oppor­tu­ni­ty for your­self.
Be pre­pa­red for (future) chan­ges and ask your­self what con­se­quen­ces the­se will have for your tasks. Develop and expand your com­pe­ten­ce accord­ingly, look for oppor­tu­nities to beco­me invol­ved. Communicate your ide­as, dis­cuss with your mana­ger how you can expand your own cont­ri­bu­ti­on. In this way, you, your manager(s), your col­leagues and your com­pany will bene­fit from your com­mit­ment.
