Now that we have all proven that we can at least cobble together a way for our people to work from home, what are some of the best ways to make this remote option work well for your A&A team moving into the future?

This hour starts with consistent elements of leadership that creates followership - which become more in need of intentionality when the team is remote, then it touches upon critical components of managing remote work such as setting expectations, equipping your team members, two-way and team communication frequency and methods, maintaining your firm culture, etc. We mention a few technology options along the way.

This course is appropriate for anyone in a people-supervisory position: from senior accountant to managing partner. The leadership elements can truly apply to anyone in any position within a firm.

Very relevant course given COVID and a great reminder for all levels of management on how important it is to communicate, set expectations, and listen.

Great course on timely subject matter! Some really good tips and I think these are things that can not be as obvious to someone who has been at a company for awhile, however, can be very much needed for new hires to a company.

Very timely, no-nonsense advice. Even if you think you already know how to remote-work, this was a good moment to pause and think about what you can do differently in a post-COVID remote world.

Since I worked from home at the beginning of the pandemic, the items mentioned concerning the home office and atmosphere were good ideas to help those still working at home.
