Tools and Techniques to Empower Your Team's Remote Culture

April 15, 2020 at 12:00:00 PM · Central Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

With the Coronavirus forcing many offices to close and employees to work from home, we’re faced with a strange and unfamiliar challenge: how can we stay happy, healthy and productive while stuck working at home for an unknown amount of time?

Thankfully, as with any unexpected change, mandatory remote work presents us with an opportunity for personal growth. We all have the chance to improve our virtual collaboration skills, review and enhance our team communication norms and experiment with new and exciting technologies for working together across distance and time.

Specifically, this live, interactive video webinar will cover:
-How to build solo work habits to maintain focus and avoid burn-out
-How to set up your at-home work area
-How to maintain social and professional ties during social distancing
-Techniques for leading effective virtual meetings
-How to talk with your teams about virtual communication expectations and norms
-Setting boundaries to enable work-life balance in your home

Dave will also share what he learned from his previous work at AECOM Strategy+ as a Remote Work Program designer as well as virtual communication and collaboration training techniques he’s designed and implemented in his role as CEO of Oak and Reeds.

Afterwards, Dave will stay on the line to answer questions from attendees.
