Successfully working from home on a continual basis as a result of the Coronavirus epidemic is a very different experience to occasionally working from home to ‘get stuff done’ as part of our flexible working policies. It will also be very different for home based filed workers who combine some ‘home office’ work with life on the road visiting customers, suppliers and prospects.
3 foundational questions to support purposeful home working through the coronavirus epidemic
You will find it useful to consider this period as a personal development opportunity; a chance for you to develop your personal mastery over your workload planning, prioritisation and critical result delivery – as well as developing your personal drive, motivation and resilience. So, with this in mind, the 3 questions:
What can you put in place now from all the personal development training you have done down the years? Stop and make a note of what cones immediately to mind as good information you have gathered over time.
What can you deliberately bring to bear in your homeworking environment that you have always found hard to put into practice back at the office?
Are you going to treat working from home as an endurance test or an opportunity for personal development and mastery?
