Course overview

Sometimes you can’t be in the room, so you have to trust someone. Like when you leave your lunch in the breakroom. You can’t monitor it all morning, so you trust that your co-workers won’t eat your PB & J before you do. It’s a trust built on respect, understanding, and the threat of an angry email going around the office if anyone takes your lunch.

If teams aren’t in the office together, building trust in other ways is vital. Working at a distance means your managers can’t keep an eye on things as closely as they could in the office. When some people aren’t supervised, they might take liberties. But then again, most will work diligently. This course will help to combat the distrust that remote working creates, and your managers will learn why trust is so important at a distance.
