Corporate clients across the world are working from home due to quarantine or as a part of their company's Business Continuity Plans. Without the conveniences of a "real" office and having no in-person interactions with colleagues, working from home can present leadership challenges and take a hit on productivity. It can also leave you feeling a bit "isolated."
Read further below for some actions Executive Coaching clients are taking to successfully lead organizations from remote locations.
I'd love to hear additional suggestions you have for this list - you can share them in my blog comment section.  Thanks in advance for your ideas!

Meanwhile, I am in the process of finalizing the subtitle of my upcoming book, The Forgotten Choice.  Could you do me a favor and complete a quick subtitle survey?  Read below for how to do just that.

Thank you sincerely!

Feeling isolated? Proven tips for leading through COVID-19

  • Clarify up front with key colleagues and team members how you will communicate while working remotely. Which medium works best based on what you are trying to accomplish? Phone, video, WhatsApp / texting, emails...?
  • If you do choose to email team members, send a few points in one note, rather than sending an email each time something comes to mind.
  • Avoid "complete" isolation - stay as connected as you can by liaising with at least two people per day via phone or video.
  • Designate a specific space in your living quarters where you will work.
  • Have open, honest conversations with household members to establish "new rules of the game," asking their help to honor your workspace and allow you to have focus time while you are there.
  • To keep things personal, set up a rotating "virtual coffee meeting": you and a colleague each grab a coffee in your respective locations, then get on a video call together. Rotate your virtual coffee buddies regularly, inviting one or two key team members per day. Make sure to talk about things outside of work, too.
  • Build a sense of "we're in this together." Take advantage of today's great video chat capabilities (Zoom, Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp, etc.) and host a full-team meeting once every 2-3 days.
  • Ask team members to share photos of their at-home work environments, and provide tips and tricks to make each other's work spaces better. This helps to build bridges and improve engagement (while having a bit of fun) when everyone is working from different locations.

Feel free to reach out to me at anytime if I can be of any help.  Stay safe, and I wish you good health throughout the weeks and moths ahead -

Here's to YOU™!
