Overview

This webinar provides tips on how to successfully support your team and drive results, with empathy and understanding, as we continue to work remotely. You will learn how to establish clear expectations for remote work, to stay connected with your team, and to promote teamwork to achieve results, while remaining flexible.

Why Should You Attend

To protect our health, more and more companies are asking employees to work remotely for the foreseeable future. In fact, many organizations are considering a permanent shift to work-from-home for many roles. As a leader, you can no longer evaluate how things are going by walking around the office, checking in on staff and holding impromptu problem-solving meetings.
