W.A.N.T.E.D. Power Workshop Series

Your Mindset is a Skill Multiplier

Welcome to the world’s first experience-based workshop series for assisting professionals where it’s our ambition to eXplore, eXperience and eXhilarate your mindset and your soft skillset! The importance and impact of mindsetting is universal. It's not connected to any company, country or continent. It's the very reason why Indispensable Professionals are exceptional at what they do!

A skilful Assisting Professional is more than a set of learnable hard skills. It’s the person behind the title that is making all the difference. A lot is expected from us nowadays; fast-paced environments, tendencies towards managerial duties, complex team dynamics and level up executive thinking processes.

Undeniably, our hard skillset is important to take on the excellence challenge. But it’s who you are inside that delivers on external expectations and fulfils this role to the fullest. It’s time to pay attention to the core values that make us who we are today and make them stronger, bigger and better - from within!

GPA workshops focus specifically on understanding and excellerating Indispensable Mindset and soft skills, delivering essential theories, methods and practice to the art of professional self-mastery and awareness.
Our practical assignments will result in controlled personal development. Small group setting will contribute to accelerated learning. Unformal nature and dialogue opportunities will fasten the process of improvement and insight. A chance to learn from each other will enrich your experience.

We celebrate your growth mentality. As your workshop master, I guarantee you will gain understanding, insights and valuable experience every time you join us. Our goal is to groom you to become that Indispensable Professional!

Your attendance and commitment will accelerate your job performance and transform your personal branding and positioning. Expect to benefit big and gain a strong self-confidence, supported self-awareness and ambition, effortless external acknowledgement and comforting inner pride.

Confidence

  “GAIN PROFESSIONAL CONFIDENCE
AND PERSONAL POSITIONING.

IT’S NOT UP TO OTHERS – IT’S UP TO YOU.
TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR TALENTS.

ONLY YOU KNOW YOUR STRONG ATTRIBUTES,
SHOW OTHERS HOW THEY CAN BENEFIT”

Upcoming Power Workshop 'Get Noticed and Acknowledged'

Your Opportunity to Be a Part of Something Different

Do you work in a highly result driven & fast environment, but are you and your contribution get overlooked?
Do you need to prepare yourself for a promotion meeting, a performance review or a job interview?
Are you hammering away with your duties while having lost the direction of our professional ambitions?
Or was it simply too long ago that you have heard a sincere 'Thank you' or received so much desired acknowledgement?


If all that sounds familiar and you experience times where you lose yourself in the process… then our upcoming GPA power workshop will be like a 'fresh breath of air' to you!

Our professional state of mind is challenged to the max, won’t you agree?!
The reality of modern work environment is challenging. Demanding requests and meticulous quality standards challenge our ability to deal with various levels of authority, managing people's expectations and spotless execution. But we always find ways to cooperate with countless parties, to negotiate best terms and to smooth any trouble along the way …and where are YOU and your branding in this process? Do YOU and your positioning suffer a little (or a lot) along the way?

What makes it possible for us to excel in our actions while bravely taking on the responsibility of being the new generation ‘leaders from behind’?
It’s our own MINDSET STRENGTH AND TALENT POSITIONING! It's our ability to follow and express our values and talents while being the face of an organisation!

How to achieve all that? By becoming a master at PERSONAL BRANDING and PROFESSIONAL POSITIONING. It's a tricky art of influencing the elements around you so all can benefit. Your soft skills and your trusted mindset are extremely important in this process. You need to be familiar and in control of your personal branding if you want to get noticed. We often forget and sacrifice our positioning... and oh boy do we pay the price. The longer you linger on - the higher the price of low self-esteem you pay.

Do you REALLY want to GET NOTICED? Do you desire for your efforts and talents to be TAKEN SERIOUSLY?
It's time to change your personal branding... Are you game? Get boosted and supported by a community of celebrated AWESOME PROFESSIONALS!


Our promise to you: At the end of this day... you will be able to position yourself as an expert 'of your trade' and present your talents as a perfect fit to any position you desire. You will feel professionally empowered and confident from within.

“YOUR PROFESSIONAL BRANDING IS AN

POSITION YOUR BRANDING UPFRONT.”

Experienced Leadership & Focus on Self-Growth

The setup of our event sessions is divided into three areas of focus:

eXperience.
To know how to get to your destination you need to know your current location and be aware of your habits that brought you there. In this section we’ll dive into the depths of our current mindset presets and understanding of our familiar ways of doing.
eXplore.
Before you learn how to run you need to walk. This practical section is about discovering new ways of doing and thinking, followed by practicing the art of self-mastery. Under our executive supervision you will set first steps in the desired direction.
eXpress.
For your new ways of action to work for you – you need to get extremely inspired to follow through. In this section we’ll focus on quick wins and success stories. Arm yourself with ready-to-use techniques and take-away guidelines.

WILLING . AVAILABLE . NICE . TENACIOUS . EFFECTIVE . DEDICATED

Every Assistant has these skills by design. We just don’t use them consciously and don’t pay attention to the levels of their maturity. We expect them to grow with time, gaining the experience as we go. Why leave all of that to chance?! Mastering your soft skills is the ultimate purpose and focus of these series of events!

Every W.A.N.T.E.D. skill deserves a spotlight attention. To eXplore their fundamental meaning and impact on your abilities we have chosen perfect topics to help us eXperience and accelerate the full potential of their nature.

W.A.N.T.E.D. Power Workshops

Every Core Skill Deserves a Center Stage

Every W.A.N.T.E.D. Power Workshop is focused on targeting specific challenges Assistants face in their jobs. Most recurring are the topics of Work-Life Balance, Branding & Positioning and Stress Management. We believe that those can be conquered and mastered with the support of the properties, strengths and unused powers of our designated Core Soft Skills. Those can be interpreted as:

  • Core skill Willing is of crucial importance for 'Positioning' yourself as an expert Assisting Professional.
  • Being Available means being true to your 'Personal Integrity' while being well prepared, adaptive and responsive to challenging circumstances.
  • Application of being Nice is the core ingredient of 'Relationship Intelligence' and represents the need to master it with all its complexity and variety.
  • Being Tenacious means you can operate in 'High Performance' mode with indomitable focus and energy.
  • Effectiveness is your ability to 'Balance' elements around you and make them work in your favor so you can deliver on required results.
  • Audacious Dedication has the power to transform and generate 'Change Manifestation', compelling objectives to take on shapes that you aim for.

Uniquely designed W.A.N.T.E.D. Power Workshops will provide you with valuable ready-to-implement tools and methods. They will set your mindset to effortlessly work in your favor.

GPA Focus

Excusively for Assisting Professionals

Our focus is on YOU! Whether you are a junior Assistant, a midlevel professional or a seasoned expert providing excellent support...

W.A.N.T.E.D. events will boost your mindset, perfect your attitude, elevate your performance levels, reinforce your drive, nurture your core values and most of all … celebrate, pamper and pay much needed attention to the most important person behind any assistant – YOU!
Assistants often forget to support and care for themselves. We often lack time and energy to have a full personal life outside the ‘office hours’. A well-known occupational hazard. We, too, need to take a break, to ground ourselves and to express ourselves freely in a trusted circle of likeminded professionals.
GPA provides targeted educational and inspirational modules to master your mindset and polish your Soft Skillset. That's what Global PA Academy stands for! It’s all about YOU for a change. Who we are matters and we need to focus on what makes us superb at what we do – it’s our values, our character qualities and our attitude, all resulting in the exceptional fulfillment of our roles.

It's about our Assistant-state-of-mind, the art of self-mastery and the skill of self-management!

    About GPA

    Reasons behind the W.A.N.T.E.D. series

    No matter what the title is: EA, PA, Administrative Assistant, Head Butler, Estate Manager, family assistant or any other variation of assisting professional… it’s who you are at the core that makes you good at what you do. At some point we reach a level of professional maturity, our hard skillset is up to the required standards. What now?!

    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.

    W.A.N.T.E.D. event series are born out of mere necessity. We need to polish our soft skills to be able to deal with complicated interpersonal relationships, have a higher sense of knowing how to behave in certain situations, being able to quickly switch and flex our mindset and be very aware of your own state of being while providing superb support to our executives.

    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 Dragon

    Symbol Deffinition

    Dragon is a perfect representation of an Empowered Assisting Professional. Welcome to our GPA Dragon's Den!

    GPA Dragon symbol tells all about who we are and what we stand for as Assistants. The focus meaning of GPA Dragon:
    • A dragon is always a combination of species – a perfect metaphor for Assistants as we are required to tailor our set of skills to complete any task.
    • Dragons have a life-giving capacity – which is true as we often create something out of nothing and we achieve the impossible.
    • In Chinese daily language, excellent and outstanding people are compared to a dragon – that is exactly how we would describe Assistants.
    • Dragons often bear a pearl which perfectly balances on his breath – a balance we Assistants constantly strive for.
    • Some dragons represent justice. They guard against danger, injustice, deception and betrayal. Always ready to help and rescue, but the pearl of welfare is only reserved for the chosen ones – this justifies our role as gatekeepers of our executives and the people we support.
    • More than any other symbol, dragons master all elements of nature. A dragon can take many forms and can be victorious in any circumstances - which is very convenient with what we do as Assistants.
    Exceptional application belongs to the Dragon of Ambition, who has ultimate perseverance skills and strong ambitions. Ancient Chinese legend tells a story of a goldfish that conquers a great amount of complications and challenges on its way to the Dragon Gate, then jumps over it and as a reward is turned into a mighty dragon. This stands for great potential in all of us as long as we are committed to work hard and honestly for what we want. The dragon of Ambition is constantly on its quest to improve, acquire knowledge, stimulate progress and secure results.

    In addition: GPA Dragon stands for wisdom, strength, goodness, dignity and alertness. He entails qualities of future growth and expansion. He guards positioning, reputation and career. With wings he can soar high above, giving him a panoramic perspective. He has the ability to see the “bigger picture” as well as the ability to see danger looming in the distance or foresee future developments.

    Dragons usually possess some form of supernatural power. Yes, we do!
    Dragons are the most complex and universal creatures on earth. Yes, we are!
