How to transition to remote work, ways to be productive

Leadership coach Anja van Beek suggest ways to be productive if you are working from home.

How can companies and their employees successfully transition to remote working conditions in the time of COVID-19?

Leadership coach Anja van Beek helps us navigate these uncertain times and suggests ways to be productive if you are working from home.

The first step that I have seen that works quite well is that you don't adjust your daily routine. Don't consider sleeping in but rather stick to that morning routine simply because your brain is used to that rythm and even signals to you that it is time to get going.

Anja van Beek, Leadership coach

It is best perhaps to still dress comfortably, neatly, not necessarily as formal as you would for a day at work but subconsciously it tells your brain that it's now in work mode and not necessarily lounge mode.

Anja van Beek, Leadership coach

It is critical for teams to agree on the basics. What are the new rules? Are we going to stick to the 8-5? When are we going to have a meeting time? What technology are we going to use to check in?

Anja van Beek, Leadership coach

What happens if you do not have the most conducive home environment to work from?

Beek says business leaders need to be empathetic and understand the reality of employees.

If I put myself in your shoes, what are your realities? How can we support you to be productive?
