Staying connected to avoid potential isolation and loneliness

About this Event

Working remotely by its very nature means people will be separated from work colleagues and line managers. Whilst this can be ideal when you need to focus on a specific complex piece of work, there are potential psychological challenges for some people. When there are gaps in communication and information, our brains naturally try to fill in the blanks. This is when misperception can play a part in misunderstanding and conflict, adversely affecting relationships and creating a feeling of isolation

In this practical webinar you will: increase your awareness of the potential pitfalls of working from home, discover easy-to-implement steps and learn to take responsibility for preventative action. The session will also help you to look out for fellow home workers, both inside and outside your organisation (or, indeed, home).

What’s in it for you?

  • Understand how physical separation can create a feeling of isolation and loneliness
  • Learn simple communication tips to increase connectivity with others
  • Discover how caring for others improves our own mental health
