The Strategic Executive Assistant
The concept of the "strategic" Executive Assistant is at the heart of this programme. It encapsulates not only the capabilities and behaviors that we aim to add to our skillsets to continue to develop in our roles, but a mindset change.
Thinking about, planning for, and steering towards for the tasks that may, will and should be next, while operating effectively in the day-to-day that is already here in front of us.

- Turning Responsibility into Authority
From Admin Support to Business Support
Developing into a more strategic corporate resource in your own right – a more fundamental understanding of business models in general, and the business of your own organization, in particular, is required.
Only by acquiring such fundamental understanding will we be able to "put two and two together" and support our executives with not only operational tasks but with analytical, strategic, and proactive work.

A Scientific Approach to Productivity
As humans, we are becoming busier and busier yet we are losing our ability to actually control our own mind. During the Professional Master for Executive Assistants, we take an in-depth look at the science behind “deep work”, how the human focus is being up-valued in today’s job market and how the ability to concentrate is worth more than ever.
As Executive Assistants, we are experiencing moving pieces enough as it is, now let us have technology work for us, not against us.

Elevating the Executive Assistant
We collaborate on the steps needed to elevate your support to truly strategic support. This includes models for executive discussions and strategic planning. But also an outline of what makes you unique as a human resource, and a strategic plan to strengthen those capabilities.
- Emotional Intelligence
- Preparation as a Competitive Advantage
Office politics is all around us. Sometimes working in our favour, sometimes working in the background to bring us down. Most often it’s none of those extremes, but an invisible force affecting people’s attitudes, decisions and opinions.
Independent of what approach you chose to take, and we will be talking more about your options shortly, you will need a fundamental understanding as you now move into a more strategic role. Because you can ignore office politics, but you cannot escape it.

The Future-Proof EA at Work
Enhanced technology is not a threat but an opportunity. We have a look at how we can position AI, data science, and automation strategically in our career, having it support us and make us stronger on the skills and abilities that are uniquely human.
We also have a broader look at adding to the Executive Assistant role by seeking an active part in broader corporate projects and initiatives.

- Enhanced, not replaced, by technology
- Critical judgement
- Competitive analysis

Organizations around the world are experiencing rapid, sweeping changes in what they do, how they do it, and even why they do it. Increasing globalization and new technologies demand new modes of working and talent with new and diverse skills.
And that is not just buzzword jibberish: amongst Executive Assistants, we have all seen – firsthand – the fundamental changes that digitization brought to our desks.
The evolution will continue and we need to be prepared.
