Finally, Ryan shared many tips for keeping teams engaged and productive while working from home, including:
- Reread your messages before you hit send. Tone is often misinterpreted in text-only communication and can come across in a way you didn’t intend.
- Make an effort to be social. You are a human, and you need social interactions to maintain balance. Make sure you make time outside of work hours to have a social life.
- Save your ASAPs. We all want to get everything done now, but saying you need something ASAP when it can actually wait is very disruptive to the rest of your team. Be realistic with your needs and expectations.
