If you have ever worked from home, you know it is different than working in the office. There are benefits, and there are challenges too. Some people yearn for the chance to work from home, and some might not have a choice – like it or not. If you are preparing for this situation, know it isn’t all bon-bons and The Price is Right. If you are reading this from your home office, you know that is true, and likely want to be more successful.
More and more people find themselves working from home at least part of the time. Like many other workplace trends, these changes rarely come with adequate preparation and training. If you work from home, or find others in your organization working from home, we have a new resource for you.
Along with our award-winning partners, Vado, we have created a three-course e-learning series titled How to Work Successfully From Home. Each course provides video instruction from Wayne Turmel, our Remote Leadership practice leader, along with tools and checklists to help apply his ideas in real life.
The courses cover preparing to be successful working from home, being productive in this different work environment, and being a successful virtual teammate – since teamwork is still required even when you don’t see those teammates all day long.
Since it is e-learning the courses are short and highly practical. Unlike most traditional e-learning it isn’t dull, boring or focused on passing a quiz. Pehaps best of all, the investment is very modest! Pricing starts at $14.95 and discounts apply if you want to invest for groups and/or place these course on your organization’s LMS. You can buy a single or small number of seats directly. If you have questions or want to purchase in bulk, contact Wayne directly.
If you or others in your organization are, or will be working from home, this investment will pay both short and long term benefits in clearer expectations, greater confidence and higher productivity.
