Time Management/Working From Home

Working from home is a wonderful opportunity. It offers more flexibility and can eliminate a daily commute. It can also help you feel more relaxed and closer to those that you care about. It also presents a lot of challenges, especially when it comes to time management. In this 90-minute webinar we’ll discuss ways that anyone who works from home or works remotely can not only better manage their time and stay focused while at work, but also have a proper balance in their personal life and manage relationships with loved ones.

Effective Remote Collaboration

Working remotely brings rewards and challenges. One of the biggest challenges is collaborating effectively with others. Whether one or both of you are working from home, or out in the field, the lack of face-to-face communication can make it difficult to work together effectively. This 90-minute webinar provides tools and best practices to help overcome some of the most significant challenges.

Engaging Remote Employees

Many supervisors and managers are finding themselves managing remote employees and teams for the first time ever. One of the biggest challenges is keeping folks engaged and productive. The additional challenge of work/life balance from home is one that leaders can help their employees manage. Opportunities to engage remote staff are at the heart of this 90-minute webinar that explores the challenges of keeping folks engaged while providing tools and best practices to help do so.
