Virtual Workplace Series Part 2: Your Online Presence

Video meetings are becoming commonplace with virtual workforces. As you start conducting more and more business online via video calls, it's important to think about how you "show up" to these meetings. Working virtually provides us with an opportunity to think about how we can shape our personal brand and the image we project to the world.

Virtual Workplace Series Part 3: Stop the Zoom, I have to Get Off!

The constant onslaught of video calls (Zoom, BlueJeans, Google, Teams, etc) can make it seem like you're spending all day, every day glued to yout chair and yout screen and struggling to keep up. Short interactions with employees to answer a quick question are becoming scheduled video sessions. So rather than spending 5 minutes at someone's desk, leaders find themselves back to back in 30 minute video calls. While this might work in short bursts, this behavior pattern just isn't sustainable over the long term.

Virtual Workplace Series Part 1: Creating a Productive Environment

One of the biggest challenges with making the transition to working from home is finding the way to separate work life from home life. When you work in an office, this is simple: work happens at the office, and home happens, well, at home.

Executive Presence: The Devil is in the Details

Our experience as coaches has helped us more clearly define concepts like "executive presence" or "strategic perspective" for our clients and help them through their transitions to develop the skills and behaviors their senior leaders are looking for. While every situation is different, finding the balance between short-term delivery and longer term perspective is a theme that consistently seems to challenge a lot of leaders.

Multi-Tasking: Truth or Fiction?

The number of productivity tools we have seen introduced in the last fifteen or 20 years is staggering. Things like email, instant messaging, online calendars, smartphones, scheduling software, and so on, all hold the promise of helping improve the way we manage our time. However, at the same time, we see professionals in all industries who are busier than ever and overcome with stress and the burden of too much to do and not enough time. The tools don’t seem to be working. Rather than helping us manage our time, as intended, it seems they have made it easier for us to become overwhelmed by the constant onslaught of information and requests for more time. The real problem isn’t the tools: It’s the behaviors we have adapted based on the misconception that these tools will somehow allow us to process more or manage more things simultaneously.
