Working from Home: The Secrets of Success (Online Workshop)



Our 90-minute virtual and interactive workshop will equip you with tips and tools for making your work from home schedule more structured, less stressful and highly efficient.

Led by international teams expert Allyson Stewart-Allen, you will learn proven techniques for keeping your team aligned, focused and performing. And if you’re part of a team but not its leader, you will learn how to improve your individual productivity and how to communicate more effectively with your colleagues.


Working from home is not going away. Most of us tumbled into it in a rush earlier this year. And many of us are still pretty much winging it – whether on a Zoom call or quietly working in isolation. So take a moment to learn how we can all work better together, from afar.


During this 90-minute interactive virtual workshop you’ll learn the skills that deliver high-performance in an online environment, including:

  • Tackling the challenges that make working from home fundamentally different from life in the office
  • Articulating the goals for leaders and their teams from virtual working and the business of the team
  • Providing examples, top tips and best practices for working from home
  • Getting the work done using the mechanics of roles, rules and contracting
  • Structuring the work that supports wellbeing of team leaders and members

The session will be held on Zoom, where Allyson will speak for around 45 minutes in order to allow ample time to take your questions.

We know things can pop into your diary unexpectedly. So if you sign up for the course but are then unable to join us on July 28 at 10 am BST we will send you the session recording immediately afterwards so that you can catch up on what you missed. All course attendees will receive the same recording – and a PDF of Allyson’s most important tips for working from home.
