Maximizing Your Productivity as a Remote Employee
Every leader we talk with, coach, or train tells us the same thing. They all have lots to do – more that they did six months or a year ago, with no end in sight.
The reality is that we are busy. We have full plates. We are balancing home and work life. We have incredible demands on us every day, and everyone expects their project to be done NOW! We don't want to disappoint anyone—but something has to give.
And as a remote employee, while there are many benefits, there are also additional challenges that can sabotage your productivity ...
Without the traditional office environment, it can be difficult to separate and balance where work ends and home begins. Creating the right work environment at home can be difficult, particularly if you don't have a designated office space. And without the benefit of in-person "check-ins" or regular conversations throughout the day, projects and tasks often have unclear expectations.
So while solid time and priority management skills are important for any employee's success, they're absolutely critical for the remote employee.
In this interactive session, we'll help you to get control of your day life and career. We start by identifying the unique challenges that confront remote workers, and robs them of both their productivity and time. You'll learn the importance of clarifying your role, your work and your goals and also how to make sure you and your organization are in sync right from the start.
We'll also introduce tools and technology that you can use to improve your communication and collaboration with other teammates and employees, and we'll even review how to set up an "office" that fosters productivity and creativity.
With his own team that is scatted across the country and almost entirely remote, your facilitator, Kevin Eikenberry (also a best-selling author and leadership expert), will share his secrets and practical techniques for effectively managing your time and efforts as a remote employee.
During this program, participants will learn:
- General challenges of working remotely
- Specific challenges of working at home
- How to create a remote (home) working environment that is built for success
- The "4 Productivity Pivots" that can drastically improve your overall productivity

- How to manage your calendar so that you're working during your most productive times
