There is a lot out there on personal development but not much that is especially tailored to what we Assistants have to deal with. It’s expected from us to look past the challenges, seek solutions and do whatever it takes. It’s all about our inner ability to reinforce ourselves to do more, be more and achieve more in order to get things done. That requires a specific personality and, being an Assisting Professional, you have those skills by design.
Truth is, we don’t pay much attention to the source of our super powers. Those soft skills are simply expected, but rarely praised as the reason for our excellence.
Joining W.A.N.T.E.D. events is a way for you to grow on your journey to self-mastery and to excelerate from within! We bring together the world's best experts in their field of personal development, skill elevation and mindset stimulation. Those renowned experts will provide us with strategies, tools and methods to make us perfectly fit to deal with anything that is requested of us with ease, wisdom and grace.
At Global PA Academy we aim to unite Assisting Professionals who are on the quest to become and stay up on top of their abilities.

GPA Assistant Role Vision
It’s our aim to be highly valued, appreciated and needed as Assistants! We create and surround ourselves with valuable relationships. We are devoted and passionately committed to make anything possible if our executives put their minds to it. Our results create undeniable positioning and exposure. We are proud to be Assisting Professionals.
GPA is passionately driven to tailor the educational content to the needs of Assistants today, selecting only the best experts. To create a comfortable and trusted environment to open up, experience safety to speak up, and discuss tendencies. Ultimate focus lies on the efforts to pamper and acknowledge your persona – inside and out.
The essence of Assistant-state-of-mind is to be profoundly fine-tuned and vibrant, centered and unshakable, prepared and energized, curious and tenacious in achieving more and better results. To be driven by an indomitable, unconquerable and supportive spirit. You are destined to be satisfied with and be proud of who you are and where you are, while cultivating your ambitions. To be kind and nurturing to yourself and so to be fundamentally supported from within. When Assistants excel – others benefit!
