Improve Your Skills, Enhance Your Performance, Deliver More Value and Love Your Career 

Attention Administrative Professionals: Yours is perhaps the toughest position in any organization.

My name is Chrissy, and I know because I’m a proud former executive assistant.

I’ve experienced the unique challenges of the admin role—and the unique rewards.

To this day, I have the deepest admiration and appreciation for all you do.

But support professionals need support too. That’s why I developed my custom training and development program, ELEVATE Admins. This program educates and empowers admins like no other program on the market. 

Since 2009, I’ve delivered the ELEVATE Admins program on-site at some of the world’s most well-respected organizations, including Capital One, Northrop Grumman, and dozens more.

This program has consistently helped admin teams boost productivity and performance. The totally interactive experience creates a fun, engaging learning atmosphere unlike anything else available. ELEVATE Admins has been truly life changing for the admins who have experienced it.

However, I’ve come to realize that hosting on-site training programs isn’t always realistic for every organization. Some companies have small admin teams, making the investment hard to justify.

I’ve also found that many admins crave development, learning and support—and they’re willing to do it on their own. They don’t need organizational backing. They just need access.

That’s why—for the first time ever—I’m opening up the ELEVATE Admins materials as a self-study program.

While the onsite program is fully customized to meet the needs of the team I’m working with, this self-study includes elements from all of the core concepts. It’s a consolidated package of learning materials that you can work through at your own pace. Think of it as your own personal workshop.

This is the next best thing to having ELEVATE Admins onsite. It’s an ideal learning opportunity for admins at all levels in all industries. 

The Benefits 

With the ELEVATE Admins Self-Study Program, you will build a variety of new skills to:

  • Perform higher-level tasks and projects
  • Produce higher quality work
  • Enhance efficiency and effectiveness
  • Engage in more extensive critical and creative thinking
  • Work independently
  • Resolve challenges quickly and effectively
  • Proactively prevent challenges in the future
  • Improve communication (inside the team and outside)
  • Improve collaboration and teamwork
  • Effectively manage stress and change
  • Maintain morale and positive attitude
  • Deliver powerful positive outcomes for the business

But the true results are much more extensive than this list. You will experience greater job satisfaction and a deeper level of professional investment. In turn, you will serve your executive(s) and the organization in more meaningful way.
