This is an essential handbook for all Personal Assistants, Executive Assistants or Assisting Professionals, published by Amsterdam Publishers.
As a PA you cannot succeed without hard skills. There are many books and courses on the subject, but what about soft skills? Until now there was no publication that specifically focuses on developing a soft skillset for Assisting Professionals.
One of Holland’s best known Private PAs, Anna Tjumina wrote the handbook about six core soft skills that can turn any PA into a truly extraordinary Assisting Professional.
A small excerpt from the book: “We have a lot of convictions and beliefs stored deeply and firmly within us and we need to clear up that stash first before you can add anything new and daring. After ticking that off your list, you will need the sacred combination of preserving and acting on behalf of your authentic personality and leading a balanced lifestyle. Only then will you feel empowered, accomplished and truly content. I believe it’s all about seeing and understanding the bigger picture, whether it’s your life or the life of your executive. Our ability to master this will translate into direct results. Our willingness to notice those results and act upon them will determine our level of success. It’s all up to us! We always have the choice to take control and responsibility for our actions. You reap what you sow, no hocus pocus there.”
Six Essential Soft Skills of Indispensable Assistants: How PA personal development will secure your position is available as Kindle eBook on Amazon for $9.99 and on bol.com. Amsterdam Publishers has also released this as paperback. It is part 1 of The New Generation Assistants Series.
