I learned a few matters I didn't know before about how to work better from home, especially in this time of the year where it's becoming basically mandatory.

The information presented was very useful and covered all the challenge areas of WFH. I learned some great tips I plan to incorporate into my own tasks and home office environment.

Great and easy-to-listen-to set of videos, I have also been thinking of and hearing back from my colleagues over the past few months when starting to work from home completely. In addition I heard quite a lot of recognizable situations, questions to think about and also some very helpful tips and tricks!

Thank you so much for this course! I enjoyed the interactive exercises, and think doing some of them with my team will greatly impact our team culture.
