Working from anywhere: what 2020 has taught us

Picture from Facebook

The cover article of the November/December issue of Harvard Business Review features a comprehensive article (by Prithwiraj Choudhury) on remote working, and it inspired me to take a look at the remarkable shift that has taken place during 2020. Choudhury has spent 5 years studying practices of WFA organizations.

Before the Covid crisis, working from home was seen as a privilege. The best employees, most trusted by the manager, could get permission to work from home on let’s say every other Friday to have the luxury of missing the daily commute and taking the time to pick up the children from school.

During 2020, this situation has flipped completely. The ‘indispensable’ employee may be allowed to book a desk in the office for a day, in order to attend a high impact meeting or meet F2F with other key players to attend to important business. I find it highly intriguing that our view on the way we organize collaboration has changed so radically in such a short timeframe.

Choudury says: ‘We learned that a great many of us don’t in fact need to be collocated with colleagues on site to do our jobs. Individuals, teams, entire workforces can perform well while being entirely distributed.’

Advanced Train the Onine Trainer

Advanced Train the Online Trainer

The pilot of the new advanced Train the Online Trainer is almost completed.

Here is what participants have said:

‘It is amazing how deeply we have connected as a learning group, across geographical distance and through technology. This shows how (professional) online facilitation can move beyond the superficial sharing of information and into a space of deep learning’.

‘I used to dread online facilitation, missing the human contact, but thanks to Nomadic IBP I have fallen in love with it’.

To ensure an optimal mix of participants, there is an application process for the Advanced TTOT. If you are ready to move your online facilitation skills to the next level, sign up here for a (free) 20 minute call with a senior trainer to determine your fit with this programme. The next Advanced TTOT starts on January 13.

Technical tips for your online sessions


Making the best of the

Powerpoint's Presenter View in Zoom

If you like to have all things organized and in hand when facilitating online, you may have realised how convenient is to use two screens during your facilitation. In one screen you can have the plaform that you using to stream your online session, while in the other you keep all material you will use during the session and/or will share with participants.

Using the PowerPoint Presenter Mode is also very handy, as it allows you to see not only the slide you are presenting, but also the upcoming slide and even the thumbnails of all slides, and it offers useful tools such as PowerPoint's annotation tools and the magnifier.

You can activate the Presenter View by ticking the "Use Presenter View" box in "Slide Show" in PowerPoint.

After making this setting, every time you play your presentation, you will have the Full-Screen slide in one screen and the Presenter View in the other.
Now you only need to remember to share the proper window in Zoom. Make sure not to share the window in which your slide is in Preseter View but the window that has your slide in Full-Screen.

We hope this tip is helpful for you and don't hesitate to get in touch if you need any help!
