Personalized coaching to convince your manager to let you work from home
High speed internet, video conferencing, and smartphones have changed the way we do work. Many people no longer want to waste time commuting to a physical office to have a productive day of work.
Maybe you are looking for more flexibility to have better work/life integration, or you might want to move for personal reasons, but want to keep the job you love. Often companies don't have an official remote work policy, so people don’t know how to even approach the subject with their manager.
Virtual Work Insider can work with you to develop a personalized plan to get your manager, and even your manager's manager, to say yes to your work from home request. And we can help support you in getting off to strong start with your remote work.
I would be happy to speak about virtual work and its impact at your conference, board meeting, town hall, or other event.
Need help leading a virtual brainstorming session, a virtual conference, or virtual meeting? I can develop a game plan and lead your team through it.
