Event description


The assistant role today is far different than what it was 50, 20, even 10 years ago. Most assistants are now fulfilling several roles at once and often assisting more than one leader. Whatever their title, Special Assistant, Chief of Staff, Executive Assistant or Business Partner they are going beyond what has been done in the past and forging new pathways where they are thought leaders, strategic thinkers and contributors to larger significant outcomes within the business. That’s not ending anytime soon with organisations continuously performing in new and extraordinary ways. The High Performing EA enables Assistants to make far greater impact throughout their organisation, provide high level leadership support and partner their Executive with far greater impact.

Who Should Attend

The High Performing EA is designed for executive assistants and senior-level assistants who are key to the future of their organisations. This includes those already accountable for generating new levels of performance and results, as well as those candidates for the next generation of senior executive assistants.

How They Benefit

Executive Assistants who participate in The High Performing EA obtain the skills and capabilities necessary to forge new pathways of thinking, collaboration and action to achieve the extraordinary.

The program enhances current leadership strengths and transforms counterproductive behaviours by incorporating rigorous requirements for results delivery with intensive personal development. Specifically, participants emerge from the program better able to:

  • Commit to extraordinary objectives, even when the path to delivery is unclear
  • Directly affect and dramatically improve performance —with measurable and sustainable results
  • Inspire and motivate people to step beyond familiar ways of working and attempt what’s not been done before
  • Take effective action in the face of uncertain circumstances
  • Confront and resolve issues that previously seemed immovable
  • Engage people effectively throughout the organisation and mobilise them to act
  • Generate new ways of thinking and working


This program challenges participants to commit to extraordinary results in the context of their current work and accountabilities, while providing the guidance, support and tools necessary to accomplish their objectives and to deal with obstacles as they arise.

This combination of education and application helps participants develop new capabilities that not only lead to dramatic, sustainable results, but also create new possibilities for the future of their role.

The High Performing EA is typically delivered in 2-day segments (8 days in total) over the course of 7-8 months:

SESSION 1: Creating the extraordinary presents a framework to create and realise extraordinary intentions for the participant and the organisation.

SESSION 2: Structure for success offers access to planning and managing those intentions created in Session 1. It also offers communication techniques, how to capitalise on failings and the 4 disciplines of execution for success.

SESSION 3: Breakthrough personal barriers reveals a new perspective that is unencumbered by the limits of previous experience with respect to one’s impact on their success.

SESSION 4: Planning from the future provides methods to generate and sustain extraordinary performance and leadership for the organisation—regardless of circumstance.

The program applies an interactive learning approach that:

  • Involves participants in engaging lectures, discussions, exercises, simulations, participant presentations and small-group work
  • Provides a model for creating and delivering extraordinary outcomes
  • Requires participants to commit to measurable improvements that will make a substantial difference in their performance
  • Includes one-on-one coaching to identify obstacles that may stand in the way of exceptional performance
  • Offers a model to understand individual identity and how it shapes their performance
  • Establishes the necessary conditions for continual renewal of vision, strategy, commitment and action
