Investing in yourself for the future of work.
The New World
In the last few weeks, almost all of us will have been trying to get to grips with the challenges of working remotely from home. But setting up a desk in the living room, juggling kids, avoiding digital distraction and sheltering from communication overload is only really the tip of the iceberg.
Because the real challenge with remote working in the long run is having to adapt to a new working culture—or more specifically, the culture of you.
We call it the culture of you because, even with the best possible resources and support from your office, it really is down to you how you integrate them. You can either be your best friend or your own worst enemy.
That's why investing in yourself is so important—so that when you do face the inevitable daily challenges, you have a reliable and holistic support from yourself that you can drawn upon.
A weekly programme
We have taken all of our experience from years of helping companies adopt good digital habits to create an online programme to help individuals develop these essential skills when working remotely.
The programme is designed to be a regular light touch, so that there is a continuous but manageable thread which is there to support you throughout your week. You can choose how much or little you want to engage at any time, but it is there for you whenever you need it.
How does it work?
Each week has one simple tool, method or concept as it's focus. For example, in week 1 we will be looking at avoiding checking your phone or computer first thing in the morning when you wake up.
We will be sharing practical tools and solutions, as well as exploring some deeper themes of boundaries and habits which surround each topic.
There is a regular timetable where each day consists of short live sessions, recorded video content and exercises or challenges to help you practice the ideas we explore.
There are also multiple opportunities each week to join short live streams where our facilitators hold supportive Q&As and goup discussions.
Who is it for?
Whether you are new to remote working, a seasoned pro, or are simply trying to adjust to living almost every part of your life remotely, these skills are crucial for us all right now.
Bloom is designed as a peer community, so it incudes freelancers, employed and self-employed or any other life role which you find yourself in. Part of the strength of the programme is the support and experience which is shared across this broad community.
