This course will be in two sessions. The first session will be discussing some of the challenges and being given some tools to try out. The second session will be reviewing how it went and sharing additional approaches to try in the future.
By the end of the first session, participants will have 3-5 new ideas to try out with their family along with some additional tools/project ideas to consider trying out.
In the first session, we will start with building a baseline from where everyone in the class is and get an idea of what everyone’s parameters are. In preparation for this session, the teacher will send out a basic survey and provide a collaborative input space to collect this baseline data. Next, the teacher will demonstrate a few strategies that have been proven to be successful to help mitigate the work-life balance and improve this new family life.
The second session will be scheduled a week or two later to allow some time for families to adopt some new habits and try out some new tools to help manage the challenges of everyone working from home. By the end of this last session, participants will have even more ideas for how to manage the current situation and get some answers to questions that surfaced between the sessions. In this second session, we will take a pulse as to how things have improved and then a few more ideas will be shared along with additional resources. In this course there will be no judgement; instead, we will focus on helping one another to come up with solutions that are in our control and our family’s best interests.
