Meet the PD Team

After what has felt like the longest winter EVER, summer has finally arrived! Working from home has its challenges, especially for those with school-aged children, and that gives a whole new meaning to what it means to multi-task.

Whether juggling home-schooling with work, caring for an elderly parent or arm-wrestling a spouse for a higher percentage of the home internet’s bandwidth, we have to sometimes remind ourselves to take a break and reconnect with the lighter side of life.

The PD team decided to take our own advice. Here we are hard at work in our virtual environments:

Check out this short video created by one of our project management instructors to see how effective virtual training can be. Online group exercises can be engaging and effective. This is a great example of effectively using technology to enhance collaboration in a virtual team.
