Working from the Remote Office

1 Full Day

Technology makes it possible to do office work away from the office, and more and more employees are doing just that. The traditional office is often replaced by a “virtual office” – a nontraditional work environment.

In this workshop, participants learn strategies and techniques for handling the pressures and demands of the job while working in a non-traditional office setting.

Course Objectives:

  • Explore guidelines for successfully working in a non-traditional workplace (i.e., alternative duty station)
  • Examine the issues of distractions, priorities, and accountability in the remote office environment
  • Learn communication strategies for working together without being together
  • Explore techniques for handling the remote office communication tools (i.e., remote meetings, conference calls, video conferencing, texting, emails, etc.)
  • Identify the remote office “mindset”
  • Assess your virtual office style(s)
  • Plan, start, and run a focused remote meeting
  • Understand remote meeting logistical challenges
