Is COVID-19 forcing you and your team to work from home?
Are your team members expecting – or demanding – more flexible work, including working remotely?
Are you part of a global team that doesn’t work in the same office anyway?

With the spread of COVID-19 in our communities, you might be planning for the possibility of asking individuals or entire teams to work from home. If this is a new experience for you as a leader, it creates unexpected challenges.

You might have the logistics, technology, infrastructure, and HR requirements under control – but the real challenge comes when people are operating and collaborating in an unfamiliar environment.

For example:

  • Some people feel lonely and isolated when working from home.
  • Some get easily distracted and interrupted without the structure of the office environment.
  • Some leaders and managers worry their people aren’t being productive when they are “out of sight”.
  • People need new emotional intelligence skills to cooperate and collaborate online.
  • The dynamics of online meetings are different from in-person meetings.

This program helps you understand the challenges so you can anticipate them now and be prepared for them before they occur.

To make this work, you need to get three things right:

  1. The Right Place: Creating the right environment for remote work
  2. The Right Time: Maximising productivity and performance
  3. The Right Team: Fostering collaboration within your remote team

Who Is This For?

This is for you if:

  • COVID-19 is forcing you to plan for your team working from home
  • You want to try remote work for some or all of your team
  • Team members are already asking about working from home

How Does It Work?

This is an online program (surprise!) with three 60-minute modules:

  1. The Right Place: Creating the right environment for remote work
  2. The Right Time: Maximising productivity and performance
  3. The Right Team: Fostering collaboration within your remote team

This is an in-house program for your team, and we schedule the modules as required to fit your time frames. Typically, we complete the three modules in 1-2 weeks.

All participants also get:

  • E-mail access to Gihan for 90 days after the program
  • Access to the Disruption By Design resource centre for 90 days after the program

Why Work With Me?

I’m a business futurist, author, and speaker who helps you become fit for the future.

Since 1997, I’ve helped business leaders, thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and other change agents boost performance and productivity in a fast-changing world. For much of that time, I’ve worked with people to help them understand the future workplace – and in particular, how to manage remote/distributed teams.

Among the books I’ve written is “Out Of Office”, which was all about how to work effectively in a distributed team – working from home or other locations.
