About

Whether your teams are working from home or from the organisation’s offices, remote collaboration can be hard. We have made all the mistakes and found good solutions so you don’t have to. These are our current learning modules. You can pick one or more modules either as single “one-off” training sessions, or ask us to put together a customized program combining several modules to suit your needs.

Current learning modules:

  • Strategic Overview of Long-Term Telework for Business and Government Leaders: This online training introduces government leaders to the strategies, tools, and best practices for effectively leading in a distributed (remote/telework) model – and showcases the benefits of adopting telework as a viable long term strategy. The focus is on the unique challenges of leading, mentoring, and managing while physically apart from your team for prolonged periods of time.

  • Collaboration Models: Guidelines and introductions for different collaboration models, from fully remote asynchronous work over online facilitated war room hangouts to prolonged colocation or co-living situations with your colleagues. Those will help you to become aware of possibilities and decide which collaboration form to choose for which project.

  • Remote Onboarding: We address how to develop your remote onboarding process for the best possible start. Do not lose crucial energy and motivation at the start. Establish an accessible, shareable system and the culture necessary to properly onboard new team members no matter where they are.

  • Communication Channels: An overview of possible Communication channels and the appropriate best practices for those different communication channels. With examples reaching from digital preparation and commitment culture to simple hand signs and checklist for choosing the right channel for you.

  • Online Facilitation: Tips and tricks for online facilitation, like how to use and moderate the chat during online call meetings to help you to activate and engage groups of different sizes and goals. Addressing questions like: What makes a good webinar? How can we have online workshops?

  • Data Privacy: Integrate daily practices to ensure the privacy and integrity of you and your colleague’s data. Understand the responsibility of shared resources and the importance of user privacy in a shared online workplace.

  • Event Management: Organise and promote collaborative events in different mediums and channels. You’ll learn how online event organising, when it works, can lead to a result as effective and dynamic as in person meetups.

  • Collaborative Research : Harness the collective intelligence of your platform to gain insight into your audience and the culture that surrounds your work.

  • Digital Wellbeing: Develop the ability to be aware of and balance social and work-related aspects of your and your colleagues’ everyday digital routines. Understand for example the role of cats and other positive noise to amplify social signals in digital communication.

  • Distributed Workflows: Learn clear structuring and sharing habits for common resources and the importance and methods of open communication of workload and ownership for distributed workflows.

If you are unsure about which modules are most suitable for your context, we also offer the following services:

  • Self-Evaluation Tests: You (anonymously) answer a few questions on an online form. Based on the results we send you a set of resources for putting together your own learning program.

  • Team Evaluation Tests: You and up to 5 of your team members (anonymously) answer a few questions as individuals or teams on an online form. Based on the results we send you a set of recommendations for practices that we have found to work well.

  • Organisation Audit: Every organization is different and has different remote collaboration needs, established routines, technology preferences etc. We will run one online workshop for your team to co-create a remote collaboration environment and processes that work for your organization.
