Free Webinars for 4A's Members
 
The 4A’s POD team is here for you. As you and your agencies adjust to new work and life structures due to COVID-19, we will work diligently to provide support. Over the coming weeks, you can look to this email for updates on online content, community, and guidance. 
 
As a first step, we’ve coordinated with some of our trusted partners to provide members with the following free webinars for remote workers:
  • How to Work from Home Successfully
  • How to Manage from a Distance
  • How to Work from Home with Kids
  • Work from Om: Stretch and Refresh to Reduce Anxiety While Working from Home
Working from home successfully (for employees)
To help each of us work successfully from home, The 4A’s has partnered with Strong Training & Coaching to offer a free 60-minute virtual workshop for employees. Please register for one of the slots below. (A limited number of seats are available, so pre-registration is required.)
 
You’ll learn the essentials of working in a purely virtual environment: establishing routines, setting boundaries, communicating with managing expectations, building trust, and collaborating. You will gain insight into new ways of working.
Managing from a Distance (For Managers)
To help each of us work successfully from home, The 4A’s has partnered with Strong Training & Coaching to offer a free 60-minute virtual workshop for managers. Please register for one of the slots below. (A limited number of seats are available, so pre-registration is required.)
 
Managing others and teams in an entirely virtual context is complex. You’ll learn to navigate key topics such as the nuances of managing performance via outcomes vs. observation, giving feedback, delegation, and the unique needs for communication in a remote context
Working from home with kids
Feeling stretched between your work responsibilities and your kids’ constant needs all under one roof? Spend a few minutes with certified coach Beryl Greenberg, [email protected] Leader, and chief working-mom juggler. She will help you learn how to not just survive but thrive during this changing, challenging, and uncertain time. In this 30-minute webinar, you will:
  • Make minute-to-minute decisions with greater ease. Get clear on what’s most important to you in your work and for your family to guide your decision-making.
  • Feel less alone and stressed. Not only do you have lots of peers in the same boat whom you can learn from, but there are also things you can do to help you through this situation.
  • Be empowered to move forward. When things get tough, we tend to put ourselves last. This is a critical time for us to stay healthy, positive, and productive. Learn to identify what you need and simple ways to make it happen.
Work from Om: Stretch and Refresh to Reduce Anxiety While Working from Home
Stretch and Refresh is a simple but powerful sequence of chair-yoga and standing stretching to bring awareness and relief to the physical effects of tension and stress. Participants are led through breath-based mindfulness meditation for a sense of clarity and calm. No mats, no change of clothing, no sweat!
Essential Manager Training
For managers who want a deeper dive into managing remote teams, we’ve partnered with AgencyAgile as it pilots a five-session virtual workshop: 

Using elements of AgencyAgile’s proven team-based, WFH-friendly training, this course is grounded in behavioral and organizational research that informs how computer-mediated communications (CMCs) impact knowledge worker teams and their productivity. 

Designed primarily for core managerial roles such as project- and client-service managers, it is also useful for leaders throughout the organization, and the techniques can be used to align and coordinate managerial and leadership teams also struggling with dislocation.
