A Unique, “Two-in-One” Program
By now, working remotely (or working from home) has become the norm for organizations and professionals. But making the most of it can still be a challenge. Communication in a virtual setting is difficult — from supposedly simple coordination among colleagues to longer, more complex meetings.
Still, the bottom-line does not change: we all need to deliver results, whether the intent is overcoming the current economic climate or plotting a grand recovery post pandemic! Success is highly dependent on individuals and teams communicating and aligning with each effectively other despite the many limitations.
For these reasons, we at Guthrie-Jensen’s Leadership and Communication Experts have developed a new, unique training program: Working Remotely Productively. Participants update their skills in two major competency areas.

“It made my first virtual seminar worthwhile. I enjoyed the seminar as much as I’ve learned from it. Topics are very relevant, timely and are applicable. There were a lot of engagements and sharing opportunities for everyone, which made the seminar/session lively.”
