People in many organizations have been working from home for years. However, with the current Coronovirus COVID-19 pandemic, many more workers are being asked to work from home. For those folks and those who supervise them, who are new to this mode of work, understanding how to accomplish goals in this new environment requires a quick learning curve. Working from home can be as productive or maybe more productive than traditionally going into the office. Learn the basics and some advanced approaches to get the job done in the most efficient and effective way.

Why Should You Attend:

If you have rarely or never worked from home, the first days or even weeks can be disorienting. Social isolation for many is even worse than the lack of immediate access to teammates, supervisors, stakeholders, and non-human resources. Even in this digital age, making sure you have the right office equipment and supplies can be frustrating. If your job was not technology intensive in the office setting, suddenly having to deal with a balky printer, overloaded Internet connection, or novel app or software adds to the stress of functioning outside your comfort zone.

This webinar will explore all these areas. The content is based on what we have learned over many years from working from home and building on the experience of tens of thousands of people worldwide who have been doing this for over a decade or more. Learn how to set up your home office, avoid the predictable pitfalls, and maximize your results, while making the most of the unique setting.

If you are managing people in this new environment, learn how to develop work plans and conduct review and evaluation sessions optimized for this situation. What you learn can be applied once you return to a more familiar environment. Turn the anti-teamwork situation into one which encourages engagement through virtual team building. Develop the strong sense of accountability any team needs to function through interactive virtual team sessions. Learn to thrive in the working-from-home world, not just survive until things return to "normal." Discover and enjoy the benefits of working from home. Decide which elements you want to maintain.
