Management support professionals need to have a good knowledge about their company and the business they work for in order to be able to provide the best support to their executives.
During the past years, we improved our skills with themes like Change Management, Self-Development, Business Ethics and The Digital Age. Which leads up to the knowledge that our future is finally here. Even better: The Future is Now.
This means that the time has come to enhance our soft skills: emotional intelligence, leadership, communication, adaptability, innovativeness, resilience, creativity and finally and perhaps most important: our personality.
Because in the end, a job is a job. However, you is you. We management support professionals will always do our job from our heart, in a human way.
Over the past years, we often heard that digitalization was going to take over our jobs. Some of us embraced it, some of us panicked.
However, there was no need for panic. On the contrary, management support professionals are still essential in the work place and will always be needed. Not in the same way we were needed back in the eighties or nineties, but now, today, with new skills like project management and digital marketing.
We have to continue to adapt and we have to keep on learning. We also have to focus on soft skills. Because they are the ones that will differentiate us from robots. Only then a new world of opportunities will be there for us to grasp.
In 2019, with our International Training Day and Annual Conference, IMA will help you to do so.
Don’t miss it!
