Karina Tama, founder of Senior Care Clicks, met Jason Barnard, the SERP brand man and keynote speaker, to discuss the challenges of working remotely during COVID19 and exchange some tips. He also avoids interruptions from colleagues who can easily distract him: “I’m in the mood for coffee”, “you can help me”, “it doesn’t look good”, etc. Since then, I combine long-distance work with a nomadic, homeless life, constantly on the road and working remotely. I learned a lot about self-motivation, the structure of the working day, separation of work and family life, how to deal with remote communication and even how to work with people you don’t know. Although it may be difficult for some people to adapt to the new “temporary” normality, teleworking is likely to offer a long-term perspective for many people. But whatever “they” expected, I had to wait more than five minutes for the “official” ten-minute break, lunch or the end of the day. But as long as the boss is smart, I hope that if the work that people do at home is so good and valuable to the company, there are more things that allow people to work from home for a while. Since the attack of the COVID 19 virus, the world has been subject to “auto quarantine” and “social distancing” and many companies around the world have been forced to support teleworking. Young children need your attention and don’t understand that you can’t stop working when they want to. I’ve done everything with my laptop, with my mobile as an access point, no interference at all, and my video and sound quality was better than with wifi at home, as you can see here. Don’t be afraid to edit the video to make sure everything is heard, good sound is the most important thing in a conversation. Video conferencing becomes a complicated business when someone has a bad connection in the meeting – failures, misunderstandings, interruptions, all of which can quickly build up and ruin a good session. And it can only be one thing to motivate people who are working from home for the first time. My expression was: “Go home, go home, shake” – that was the signal for every day that my attention was 100% trusted.
