Staying Visible in the Dispersed Workplace

 

Everyone knows the old adage that "out of sight" is "out of mind." There's quite a bit of truth to it. It's a facet of human nature that things that are directly in front of our face get noticed, while things that are out of our scope of awareness don't. Now that most organizations are practicing social distance, barriers of time and space can put employee visibility at risk. It can be challenging to stay connected to managers, co-workers, clients and customers who are no longer collocated.

This one hour webinar will provide solid tips, real-life examples and practical advice to help you stay connected in a virtual workplace and learn to use online tools and technology to cultivate powerful relationships with your managers, co-workers, clients and customers. Learning objectives include:

  • Warning signs to help you understand when your visibility may be at risk

  • Actions to take to immediately increase your visibility.

  • Develop a communication strategy that will help you stay connected with your managers, co-workers, clients and customers.

  • Defining Virtual Workplace Conflict

Working From Home When Kids Are Out of School
