How will my personal assistant learn new skills?

How will my personal assistant learn new skills?

Having a well-trained personal assistant who is skilled and knowledgeable about how best to support you, as their employer, will help you develop a good relationship.

People learn in different ways:

  • some like to read about how to do something
  • others like to be shown, or told how, and so might prefer to go on a practical course
  • some people like to do the job and learn as they go along
  • others like to talk and ask questions
  • some people like a mix of the above.

Talk to your personal assistant about what they would prefer. Ask open and honest questions. Think about what approach you would prefer, because you need to be comfortable with the method and approach to be used. You might want to learn and train together.
