My online work
For whom? For all people and organisations who maintain remote relationships that want to make better usage of digital communication tools.
Project Manager at HCBE
Since the beginning of the pandemic many people work from home. Sometimes we chose to do so, but most of the times we are obliged by the circumstances. The majority of us that is used to shared workspaces do not always find this transition easy. The adaptation to the new normal may provoke anxiety and a feeling of not being heard anymore. That is why it may be difficult to find work-life balance and to be assertive in order to get the social ties and the comfort necessary for our professional fulfilment.
REMOTE PEOPLE MANAGEMENT
Managing our co-workers remotely isn’t an exception anymore and the opportunities at work to create real human connections decrease steadily. Our work is being depersonalized a bit more every day and communication has become faceless, which may cause loneliness and the feeling of not being heard anymore. However, as leaders we want to understand the mind-set of our colleagues in order give them the support they need and make sure we keep the team spirit alive.
COORDINATING MY ONLINE MEETINGS
A series of online meetings are part of our daily lives now. In the meantime we miss human connection and may have to cope with demotivation, which hinders our performance. Computers are connected, but the people also need to be connected in order to create valuable human bonds. As organisers of virtual meetings we feel helpless as we lack control in these situations. They are often the consequence of mistaken beliefs and therefore a sequence of misunderstandings may demobilise our participants.
