Productive Remote Working
Everyone responds differently to working in isolation.
For some, escaping from the distractions and politics of the office brings many benefits. For others, the lack of structure and ‘invisibility’ entailed by working remotely can prove challenging.
We can all be successful remote workers, but this depends on developing an organised, proactive approach to managing time and relationships that takes account of our own particular personality traits.
The Productive Remote Working training session provides concise and highly interactive insights into the challenges you might face as a remote worker and provides useful tips and techniques for overcoming them.
â€˜Feel in the driving seat as a result of the course, loved the online experience
and keen to look at using this approach across our organisation.â€™

This session has been designed to provide remote workers – those who habitually work alone – with a set of tools and techniques for remaining productive and visible without a physical presence in the office.

- Learn how to capitalise on the benefits of remote working for you, your team and your organisation
