“Virtual Organizing”. Have you heard of it? Want to know more about it?
Virtual Organizing (VO) is a relatively recent trend in organizing. There are a limited number of organizing professionals that offer this as a core part of their service. I’m one of them.
VO is essential remote organizing. We call it Virtual because, done properly, it’s as if the organizer is in the room. I coach you, and you put the coaching into action.
The reason this approach is so successful is that effective organizing comes from effective planning. And planning can be done anywhere – I don’t have to be physically in the room with you, but you get full access to my brain. As a coach, this is the most important asset I have!
Here are some specifics of how the process works:
• I carry out an assessment for potential VO clients, just as I do for onsite clients. The difference is that you send me pictures of your space. The rest is the same – we ask each other questions, and we decide whether we can work as a team.
• We are efficient in our time together – VO sessions typically only last 1-1.5 hours. During that time, we plan what we’ll be working on so that you can easily carry on without me.
• I provide VO clients with a report at the end of the session, with their reflections, my observations, and their homework – this helps ensure the client stays on track.
Being virtual, I can work anywhere in the US. I’m available (in the Pacific NW) some evenings and part of the weekend. Payment is made via the website or over the phone. Sessions are via Skype, FaceTime, Zoom, or other video conferencing platform.
If you want a taste of what VO is like, I am offering a free 15 minute session so you can get a feel for what we might be doing and how we may work together. If you’re interested in this option, send me 3-5 photos of the space (just one space) that you want to focus on, and we’ll arrange a time for the taster session.
