Training Description

The intention of this training is to explore the challenges of creating and maintaining work-life balance when working remotely due to COVID-19.  While electing to periodically work from home may feel enjoyable and novel, being required to do so, especially when you have children, make it twice as challenging.  How to manage the stress associated with this will be focused on.

Learning Objectives

Participants will learn:

  • How to create more of a balance between work, personal life, and rest
