Level 4 of the 5 levels of remote work: Async first
If there is one good thing 2020 brought knowledge workers, it's this:

You don't need an office to help your customers.

But most organisations weren't prepared for this abrupt shift.

The biggest challenges organisations have:
1. They are recreating the office online (causing people to burn out)
2. Social interactions don't happen (or feel awkward)
3. Meetings are ineffective, because people are missing online facilitation skills

That's why we created the Future Proof program - to help people like you to leapfrog ahead of your competitors. With an engaging, result-driven, and balanced way-of-working.

In the last ten years our approach has helped 100+ companies improve their way-of-working. I'd love for you to work with us.

training program Overview

The future of work is here: Flexible hours, outcome driven and on your terms

Our part-time, live future of work program is an immersive 5 week learning experience. You'll take a learn-by-doing approach during live sessions with 10 facilitators around the world. During the Program you'll create a sustainable pace for yourself, understand the levels of remote work, use asynchronous communication to be more productive, and most importantly learn the skills of facilitating engaging workshops online.
Curriculum

Learn-by-doing with a modern remote work curriculum

Our Program is setup to make you learn remote work step-by-step with a practical curriculum that focuses 100% on learn-by-doing. Unlike a lot of online courses who are just a bunch of videos, our Program teaches you the latest tools, workflows, and best practices. To save time and nail it from the beginning, we encourage you to complete some reading and practical prep work ahead of the Workshop.

Part-Time · 5 weeks
Our Part-time Workshop is an immersive 5 weeks. You'll be joining 10 professionals from around the world and jumping into live classes on Thursday.
Preparation
Pre-workshop

As well as meeting your classmates, you'll be asked to complete prep work using Notion, MURAL, and Loom to get you up to speed on basic future of work workflows, tools, and principles.

  • Meet your classmates in Slack 👋
  • Create Notion, Google Slides, MURAL and Loom accounts
  • Learn the foundations of remote work
  • Complete practical future of work prep tasks
It starts with you
Week 1

In the first week, you'll get to dive in and design your own Perfect Week while working location-independent, and apply parts of it to your own week. This is like putting on your oxygen mask first, before helping the others around you. It gives you the confidence and skills to solve any problem when it comes to working distributed.

  • Design your own perfect week
  • Set daily goals that don't burn you out
  • Doing weekly reviews to never forget anything
  • Capture all this in your personal Operating System in Notion
Remote communication & collaboration
Week 2

In week two you will focus on asynchronous communication, to create more flexibility, freedom, and better outcomes for yourself and your team. You'll be practicing to communicate asynchronously with your team, with text, audio, and video. By the end of the week, you have team agreements on what communication needs to be real-time and what can be done async.

  • Documenting everything (yes, everything)
  • Choose your tools for effective real-time communication
  • Using text, audio and video for asynchronous communication
  • Establishing a remote company culture
Turn meetings into (remote) workshops
Week 3

In the third week you'll apply your future of work skills to create and run your own Remote Workshops. You'll create your first workshop on your own, using agile methodologies to organise and plan your workshop. By the end of the week you'll have three workshops you can run with your team.

  • Create engaging online retrospectives to improve every week
  • Learn how to run User Story Mapping sessions in MURAL
  • Running asynchronous workshops to be innovative and flexible
  • Test your workshops and improve your online facilitation skills
Create your remote first Playbook
Week 4

Week four of the Future Proof training focuses on how you can capture your way of working in a Playbook for your team. This way, it doesn't matter if someone is available or not. You can always find what you need, and onboarding new team members will become a breeze.

  • Practical tips for leaders and employees
  • Identify the best stage of remote work for your team
  • Create a heartbeat so your team can work both flexible and aligned
  • Set up the first draft of your team's Remote Playbook
Inspect and adapt
Week 5

In the final week, you reflect on your personal and team's progress. By the end of this week, you have a clear plan for making your team highly effective after the program, without burning everyone out. This will put you in the driver's seat, by moving away from reactive mode to proactive mode.

  • Inspect and adapt your team goals with OKRs
  • Define a North Star Metric for your team
  • Reflect on your personal week from week 1
  • Receive a certified Workshop Wednesday Future Proof certificate
Who is this for?

Make an investment in your future

Who is this for?

Future Proof is for creative people working in teams, with a bias towards action taking. You want to define (or re-define) your online way-of-working. For yourself, and with your team. You like working in a cohort model, where you work together with other students as a group. It's also for people who would rather not be in Zoom meetings all day, want to increase their productivity and a healthier work-life balance.

Finally, this is for people serious about working remote.

Who is this not for?

  • This is not for people who want to work at the office 5 days a week.

    If you can't (or don't like) to work from other places than an office, then this isn't for you. In this program you will make super concrete on how to work remote, or hybrid-remote (part office, part from home).
  • This isn’t for larger companies looking to hire someone to define their new way-of-working for them. We aren’t an agency.

    That said, we do have team plans available for 3 or more members of your team.
