PA Training


Hi All

I've been asked to put forward a proposal for PA Training which I am happy with. There is however one element which I'm asking for help with. The client wants something in about changes to the way they work because of entering the international market. I'm assuming around culture etc.

Does anyone have any exercises/ideas on this

Thanks in advance

    Hi Sue
    First thing that comes to the mind especially in terms of culture would be understanding body language related to culture and also different manners. The other thing is to understand international regulations and also help centers in case of problems in dealing with international laws.
    Hope you find this helpful and good luck:-)

  2. PAs and the international world
    I regularly run open courses for Executive PAs in the UK and next year in Spain – usually with a very diverse set of participants. One of the key learnings the participants get is from sharing experiences – seeing how they face very similar challenges, whatever their company or national culture. And seeing how some expectations can be different.

    If this is a proposal for an inhouse programme – it’s a good opportunity for an exercise on checking out “how we do things round here” – and then seeing whether these assumptions would be valid in another country or culture. Could be simple things like “taking lunch”; “working hours”; what does “I’ll get back to you” mean. Could be enlightening. Do get in touch direct if you want some more ideas on actual exercises.
