• IT'S A HR MOVEMENT

    By 2025, remote work in Ireland will equal if not surpass fixed office locations.

     

    Over 216,000 people worked from home or a co-working space last year in Ireland, 77% were more productive and 33% accomplished more in less time when they worked remotely.

     

    68% of millennials would consider an employer more if they offered remote work and millennials are now the largest generation in our workforce today.

     

    Remote is not a one size fits all, it is a practice that needs to fit a business and is different for every business. Remote work is also a skill that suits some and not others. It requires a different type of people management from what we traditionally know it to be.

     

    One of the biggest challenges all remote leaders face is employee burnout and lack of human interaction. Remote leaders need to increase self awareness in teams, coach and provide the necessary tools and support to get employees to self-manage their own success.

     

    Are you and your leaders ready for the remote future in your business today?

    Participants walk away with new awareness on what energizes and drains them, how to use strengths more and weaknesses less to self-lead with more success.

     

    A strength isn’t simply something you are good at or capable of doing well, it also gives you energy when you are performing.

     

    Using the above model of development, participants are taken an anticlockwise direction through a 1.5 hour debrief coaching session to make the data meaningful, and help participants understand what they need to do more and less of, to achieve more success and master self- leadership.
