How is the course set up?
I've included both written and video components for you. Discover:
6 Modules – each with its own fillable workbook of helpful strategies and practices you can implement. Each section also includes coaching questions to prompt deeper thinking. There is no one way to do things; the goal is to uncover the best way for you.
20 Videos – Supporting each module are short videos I’ve crafted to bring each point to life.
Supporting Documents - Downloadable tools to help you take action.
Invitation to Join the You, Better! Community - Be part of a Facebook group of like-minded professionals for sharing and support.
How long will it take me?
MODULES: The modules are just over 10,000 words. If you read 250 words per minute, I estimate it taking about 40 minutes to read. Read at the rate you comprehend well.
COACHING QUESTIONS: These questions are meant to be read and investigated with time and attention. Invite patience for this piece to allow the level of exploration that will serve you best. In this case, what you get out will reflect the effort you put in. Don’t be afraid to dance through the discomfort for that is where the growth is.
VIDEOS: The videos add up to just under 90 minutes and are anywhere from about 2 minutes to almost 7.

Who am I to talk about this?
You may know me as a productivity coach and before that as a professional organizer having regularly contributed to international media over the past ten years. Not only have I shared my strategies and practices for organization and productivity, but I've also been able to share my passion for seeing others successfully integrate work and life.
You may not know that prior to establishing my own business I spent over 15 years in the corporate world, much of it working from home successfully. In fact, I left the corporate world when my boss just couldn’t find her way to supporting my working from home, not even a little bit.
A thread throughout my career has been respecting humanity in the workplace. There is no greater need for it than right now.
Why does being able to work well from home matter?
I have long been a fan and supporter of working from home as the key to rich work-life integration. The opportunity to turn your commute plus time getting dressed for the office into self-care, meaningful family interaction, a much-loved hobby, or contributions to the community leads to a richer and healthier life.
I believe that figuring out how to do it well now will set more people up for success to continue working remotely at their desired level, even after people have been invited back to the office. These skills will serve you for a lifetime.

Why facts and a coach approach?
Facts will help you learn what you need to know. The coaching questions embedded in the course will help you take specific actions that will work for you. Coaching invites shifts in thinking that have a big impact not only on performance but also on well-being. Uncover what you need for a more productive and pleasurable experience working from home.
What's the best way to consume this course?
You can go through the course in order or dive into the topic that is most pressing for you.
My recommendation is to take bites instead of binge.
Binge – At about two hours and fifteen minutes to read the workbooks and watch the videos, you can consume all the content in an afternoon. The greatest value is in the time you allot for reflection on the changes you wish to make and planning for implementation.
Take Bites: Choose the module that is most pressing for you to address. Read the module and watch the videos. Reflect on the coaching questions. Capture the actions you want to take and schedule them if you can. Move onto the next module when you’re ready.
