Woman Smiling While Using Laptop 3769717

Many companies are mandating or recommending that as many employees as possible work remotely until the virus can be slowed. From now on you and your family are housebound. Going outside is not an option. Shops are closed and there's no opportunity to enjoy spring from a rooftop bar. How are you going to make the best of a challenging situation? 

3 skills to stay productive

1. Creative thinking

It is hard to imagine our lives were so different six months ago. Today we are not able to do what we used to do. There's only one solution to our problems: Be creative! And a lot of people are. Teachers are producing educational videos, digital learning hubs are available for schoolchildren, restaurants deliver meals, new online services are created. Our online course Creative Thinking will teach you how to come up with innovative solutions and crazy ideas to overcome this crisis.

2. Timemanagement

Working from home requires a different approach to planning your day. In-person meetings have either been canceled or postponed, and replaced by online meetings that take more (or less) time. You cannot do the exact same work that you did before; appointments are canceled or replaced by phone calls. You have to divide your attention between your work and your family members or roommates. How do you manage your time? Our online course Time management will help you stay productive while working from home.

3. Preventing misunderstanding

Communication is key. Remote work relies on digital communication, which means effective team communication needs more attention than ever. It may be difficult to understand each other when there is hardly any non-verbal (body) language. It may be hard to convey your message in a group chat. One of our online courses is Preventing Misunderstanding. Learn how to understand each other clearly. Create a team with effective and transparant communication skills.
