These virtual training materials have been adapted from the corresponding classroom course materials that you will also find on our website. However, we have changed the structure and content so that it better suits delivery in a virtual environment such as a video conference call, which helps with training of remote workers. This means no major alteration to the content, but the structure and method of delivery will have altered.
The Building Better Work Habits virtual training course is relevant to anybody who wants to improve how effective they are at work. This could be because they feel overloaded with work and feel that they are not in control of it. They may even think that the reason they are not as effective as they like is the fault of other people. Taking control can change this perception and lead to better results. Even people who are performing well may be able to organise themselves better and perform to an even higher standard.
This virtual training will help the people who attend it to become more aware of what they can do to improve how effective they are and to work in a smart way that helps them to achieve what they want to achieve.
