Mobi-Jane’s Self Development and Innovation anecdotes are the first in a series of 4 eBooks, for all aspiring professional assistants who want to lift their game to the next level. Inside, Cathy Harris, Professional Assistant and Professional Assistant Coach shares how assistants should grow their careers, review their job descriptions and prepare for their performance appraisal. Cathy provides PA's with the insight into building their own personal Portfolio of Evidence, understand why confidentiality is important, how to address training needs, self manage themselves, and wade through the obstacles a new job at a new organisation presents.
In addition, Cathy shares her flagship topic; Creating a PA Forum within your organisation. A much worked on guide based on my personal experiences and contributions at Discovery as former Chairperson to our own in-house forum. After being nominated winner of the prestigious award as South African National Office Professional of the year in 2006, I was invited by various organisations across Africa, to share the success of the forum initiatives.
