5 Things New Remote Workers Need
5 key things when getting started with remote work
Are you new to the remote space? Maybe working for a larger organization or starting out your own side-hustle?
My guess is that you are one of the Digital Dozen - A project manager, remote team leader, sales professional, creative solopreneur, remotepreneur, a professional coach, a voluntary sector employee, or someone who Works From Anywhere?
As a writer, coach and the co-host of the Remote Pathways Podcast, I've spent the better part of the last three decades leading remote teams, or supporting remote professionals. Especially those in the Digital Dozen I've just mentioned.
Welcome to the 5 Things New Remote Workers Need mini-course.
This mini-course (which you can view in under 40 minutes) is geared to get you exploring 5 things new remote workers need.
The first 90 Days of a role are critical and this course zooms you into five areas you will want to consider - CLARITY, Support, Knowing Your Team, Priorities, and Seeing Great Remote Work Modelled.
This mini-course is geared off an article which accompanies Episode 2 of the Remote Pathways podcast where we explore the adventures of Ned, a new remote worker.
I hope that you will enjoy this mini-course and use the worksheets to support you in your initial conversations and focus.
