Has working remotely left you feeling demotivated, stressed and unproductive?Has working from home all the time thrown your work-life balance off kilter?Do you feel like you’re constantly ‘on call’ –  not so much working from home as living at work?Or maybe you’ve found yourself working for a company that’s suddenly remote first and you’re feeling lonely, disconnected and out of the loop on key projects?If any of that sounds like you, join the club.I’m Dr Clare Lynch and I’ve been working remotely for nearly 20 years. So when the pandemic hit, I was lucky, because I’d already been there, done that – and the good news is I’d come through it.In fact, learning the right way to work remotely has actually allowed me to be happier, less stressed, more productive and hugely more successful in my work.And now I want to share with you everything I’ve learned.Working Remotely: How To Succeed In The New Workplace is your short, sharp introduction to the new way of working. In it, you’ll pick up powerful tips and techniques for making your daily work more productive, fulfilling and suited to your personal work style.                  Learn from someone who’s ‘been there, done that’      I’m Dr Clare Lynch, founder and director of Doris and Bertie, a London-based consultancy with a particular expertise in helping teams communicate more effectively. This experience matters because – as you’ll discover in the course – being able to communicate effectively with your colleagues is one of the most crucial factors for happy, successful remote teams.      In my decades-long career, I’ve worked with executives at a wide range of global organisations – from tech start-ups to global banks to national and international regulatory bodies. As a tutor at the University of Cambridge, and a Udemy instructor since March 2015, I’ve taught over 18,000 students how to communicate more effectively.            But above all, as director of my own company, I’ve worked remotely for over 15 years. And in that time, I’ve discovered the hard way all the perils and pitfalls of working remotely – such as:feelings of isolation and cabin fever when you’re not going into an office every daythe risk of being ‘out of the loop’ on key projectsfailing to establish clear boundaries between work and home – and so feeling constantly ‘on call’feeling demotivated by a lack of a daily regimeBut in that time, I’ve also learned the most effective ways to work remotely in order to reap its life-changing rewards!  Rewards such as:increased autonomy during the working daymore variety in when and where to workgreater scope to pursue creatively satisfying projectsa massive reduction in work-related stressspending less on day-to-day travel, food and clothing saying ‘Goodbye’ to the soul-destroying commute             What you’ll learn in this course          Working Remotely: How To Succeed In The New Workplace, covers the key things you need to know if you’re considering – or are already – working remotely.

In this part of the course, you’ll learn how to beat procrastination and get tons more done – so you don’t end up spending all those hours you’ve saved on commuting trying to catch up. Achieve the perfect work-life balanceOne of the dangers of working remotely is that the distinction between work and home life can become blurred – leading you to feel like you’re always ‘on call’.
