As I talk to leaders and team members who are working remotely, I hear their challenges, struggles, and concerns. One of the biggest challenges I hear is about remote team communication. People are figuring out the technology and making that work. But Zoom, Slack, and Microsoft Teams (and all the tools like them) don’t perfect or ensure effective communication. They can only facilitate it.
Whenever things change, we are well served by looking at the principles that allowed us to succeed before the change. Rather than getting lost in the technology, we need to remember that communication is with other people. People with feelings, emotions, and preferences.
That is what we have done with our latest product – brought foundational principles to a new situation.
How to Make Working From Home Work is that new product.
Based on the DISC model for communication preferences, this on-demand video learning series helps you understand why communication can be harder remotely, regardless of your style. It also helps you think about things that are happening as you (and your teammates) are working from home. Your communication strategies must take these changes into account too, if you want to be successful and avoid unnecessary conflict.
Specifically, in this six-part learning package, you’ll learn how to:
- Use the DISC Model to Understand Response to Change
- Use the DISC Model to Adapt to Working Remotely
- Apply specific tips to adapt to working remotely based on your DISC style
Whether you use DISC or not (though it will likely be more helpful if you have some knowledge of this model), the lessons you glean and apply from this new and timely on-demand video learning series will help you improve remote team communication and be able to work from home more effectively and confidently.
