Working from home with kids
During a time when everything feels uncertain and you’re working in new ways with
your teammates and clients, you may be experiencing anxiety, stress, perhaps even loneliness. Despite an abundance of opportunities to connect via virtual meetings and happy hours or webinars on a range of topics, working alone can feel unsettling.
 
You may be missing the opportunity to speak candidly to an objective
outsider: someone who knows your world and can listen to your fears, your struggles,
your wins without judgment and who can provide you with a fresh perspective.
 
The 4A’s is partnering with Kristin Bloomquist, founder of bloom mentoring, to
offer free 30-minute confidential 1:1 coaching sessions. Use this link to schedule a session on a first-come, first-served basis, available by phone or Zoom. (Spaces are limited)

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.
