Online Workshop

Working at Home

Our on-line workshop provides tools and tips on how to stay focused, happy and productive whilst working at home. Many people are comfortable working from home for a day or two a week – or for a short period to work on a specific piece of work. In our experience, the majority of people like to be in the office with their colleagues for the majority of the time.

The Issue

When people start spending more of their time working from the home base, this can certainly cause tension and issues within the team and between manager and team members. And from a personal point of view, there are many ways in which working remotely can be challenging – in terms of productivity and focus.

To be effective, people working remotely need to focus on a number of aspects relating to their personal performance and to the relationships they have with colleagues.

Fortunately, through scientifically based research, we know what it takes to safeguard personal performance and team relationships when people aren’t together all the time. If you (or people in your organisation) are working virtually as a consequence of the current health emergency (or for other reasons) then this session is for you. Full of great insights and practical tips you can put into action immediately.
