Communication and digital collaboration skills will continue to become more important, and keeping up to date with new technology is a requirement for all individuals. As you reflect on what you have learned through this course, consider how you will continue to develop your skills and confidence to try new ways of collaborating and engage with the tools available.

Hybrid working opens up the opportunity to connect and work with others globally. By developing your communication skills and approaches for more inclusive working through team working agreements, sharing better information and learning to listen, you will be able to ensure greater engagement and better conversations.

It is important, however, to ensure that you look after your digital wellbeing, hopefully something you have more awareness of and know where to find resources to help support both for yourself and others.
