The keys to working remotely
Working remotely is more common than ever, but it does require different skills and priorities than working in an office.
Join leading pioneers of remote work and virtual teams, Robert Glazer and Laurel Farrer, in this online training course to get strategies, tips, and tools to successfully work remotely - whether it's new for you or you’ve been doing it for years and are looking for some fresh, expert insight.
This e-learning course starts off with ground rules for setting boundaries, creating routines for yourself, and responding to broken-down boundaries for your own situation. Once you understand the boundary-setting best practices, we'll move on to learning strategies on how to effectively work from home.
This section provides recommendations for productivity and success. Here we'll explore topics like managing your energy, separating your workspace, morning and after-work routines, transition times, communication, and how to keep core purpose top of mind.
We'll wrap up with a discussion on how to ask to work remotely and finally review some resources for remote work success.
This on-demand training program is supplemented by video walkthroughs, a downloadable Working Remotely Workbook that serves as a companion guide to work through the course materials, and additional resources for remote work success.
After completing this on-demand learning course, you'll be able to:
- Understand how to respond to the ways working remotely could impact your life.
- Describe why it's important to have a daily schedule.
- Develop your daily schedule.
- Define your core purpose when working from home.
- Describe how to best propose working remotely to your employer.
