Remote work has become the norm during the global health crisis and it isn’t going away any time soon. Many companies are discovering productivity increases even with their staff out of the office and are beginning to announce to their employees they may be working from home from now on.
While hundreds of blogs and articles on working remotely have sprouted up as everyone throws in their 2 cents, Dr. Pam Estes Brewer has dedicated the past 15 years researching and publishing on remote teaming and has accumulated a vast depth of knowledge in the field.
Join us at the TC Dojo as we talk about this rapid growing trend and how it impacts the organizations and the individual as we move forward post crisis. How do we overcome challenges that may hold us back or cause a failure? What do we need to have in place for a winning strategy? How do we abate our own fears? If you have questions, chances are Dr Pam has answers.
