Star Achievement Series® Workshop

Level l - Four Module Workshop – Starts August 29, 2018

Location: Mt. View, CA

The Star Achievement Series® training program consists of three Levels of learning. Each Level consists of 4 full day modules (Workshops), conveniently spread out one day every 3-4 weeks. The Levels do not correlate to the number of years someone has been in the profession. The Levels relate to concepts and philosophies taught in Star Achievement®, similar to college courses. This outstanding series has helped thousands of executive administrators advance both their careers and professional relationships with their executives and supervisors. The results will be immediate, and the subject matter will offer solutions that are real world and practical.

About the Courses
The entire series consists of interactive workshops to assist participants in learning by doing, and have a maximum class size of 25 allowing for individualized attention. Each level and module is designed to get the participants to think on their own, while giving them new strategies and techniques they can implement immediately. Conducted by CEO Assistants who understand what is needed to be successful in their profession, the program can be custom tailored to your company needs, and held on-campus or off. Workshops take place over a 4-day period conducted once every 3-4 weeks to lessen the impact of time away from work. Corporate discounts available for 3 or more attending from the same company.

Attitudes are an important basis for our health, relationships and performance. Your attitude can greatly affect your work and productivity. If you are busy feeling hurt, angry, or put down, you cannot do your job. Therefore, it is important to guard and protect your attitude. It is your most important asset.

Building a Star Partnership™
Managers rely on their staff for everything from project follow-through to ensuring internal and external customers are served appropriately.
