Are you ready to go from frazzled to focused? Are you starting to fray around the edges as you try to adjust to "the new normal"?
Let me help you to regain control, connection and calm while working from home.
You might be someone who is brand new to working from home, or you might have been working from home for a long time, but now you're trying to share space with partners, roommate and/or kids who are also trying to work (and learn) from home.
In this course, we cut through the noise (of 1000+ "best tips for working from home" articles) and I provide you with a step by step plan to reign in the chaos, get productive from home, and even enjoy it.
Imagine how it would feel if you were able to:
Disconnect from work in the evening, even when you're working AT home.
Get your important work done, even though you've got your kids, partner or even pets competing for your attention during the day.
Keep your work relationships healthy and maintain good will and camaraderie with your coworkers.
Feel confident that you're addressing the needs of your team, even when you no longer see them every day.
When you complete this course, you'll be able to:
Set boundaries (in time and space) so you can avoid letting work bleed into your home life
Stay focused (in the face of distraction) so you can get as much, if not more, done than when you were in the office
Communicate effectively (from a distance) so you maintain relationships and hit your goals
Stay connected (to your coworkers) so you don't lose touch and keep morale high
Manage your team (remotely) so that your team stays hyper-productive and you don't turn into a dreaded micromanager
Work productively from home even if you've got kids and pets you're responsible for
In short, you'll move from feeling frazzled to focused! You'll be productive and calm, when working from home.

You're having trouble separating work from home life
You're more distracted than ever right now (by your family, the comforts of home, or your incessant need to check the news)
You're feeling like you're out of the loop, or having more miscommunications you do in the office
You don't feel as connected to your team as you'd like to be
You know you need a game plan, but you're overwhelmed by all the "free tips" floating around the internet

PLEASE NOTE: This course was developed, filmed and edited from home (where I am "sheltering in place" due to the Coronavirus outbreak). As such, the production quality reflects the "at-home" nature of our currently reality and there is therefore comprised in large part with voiceover and slides content versus direct to camera video. If you have taken my "Time Management Mastery: Do More, Stress Less" course you might wonder why they were filmed differently, and this is why.
Who this course is for:
- People who are new to working at home and struggling to be productive
- People who have been working from home, but are now doing so with their families around
- People who are new to working from home and having trouble setting boundaries for good work/life balance
- This course is NOT for people who consider themselves experts at working from home.
I'm a productivity, time-management and efficiency expert (aka nerd). I spent the first 15+ years of my career managing operations and HR at several early-stage start-ups, where there was always way more to do than people to do it. But I also believe that work-life balance is essential for everyone, even though the definition may be different for everyone.
As a result, I began to develop and implement productivity systems in the companies I worked for, and in my life, to ensure that goals were met, balls were not dropped, and that, most importantly, I, and those around me, stayed sane.
My productivity and time-management systems, techniques, tricks and hacks can be customized to any team, individual or household. My aim is to help you do all that you want to do, with less effort and less stress.
With my help, you will learn that it's possible to stop worrying that you have forgotten to do something, or are behind on something, because you will be on top of what you need to do. I will teach you how to prioritize effectively, so that you can spend the right amount of time on the right things. My strategies and techniques will help you to preserve your play time and give your brain a rest, all while getting more done than you can imagine.
With a background in HR, I am also SPHR and SHRM-SCP certified.
