A mindful approach to remote working

Build a Sense of Community with Your Team

  • Be intentional in finding occasions to learn about each other’s hobbies, personal projects or life events.
  • Seek opportunities to get to know each other outside the work environment. This is more challenging when remote, but some of us still live in the same city and soon we hope (pray) that grabbing a coffee together becomes a safe option again.
  • In the virtual world, you can do an online course with your peers so you motivate each other and have a conversation about a non-work related topic.
  • Do you invest enough time in nurturing relationships at work?
  • Do you bring your authentic self to work and share what matters to you?
  • When was the last time you connected with a colleague outside work?

Practice Thoughtful Communication

  • Do you often review the tone of your emails before sending?
  • Are you guilty of overusing a single channel of communication?
  • Do you write in a clear manner that others understand what action to take?

Genuinely Look After Each Other

  • Are you practising being consciously present at meetings?
  • How regularly do you show appreciation at work?
  • Do you often reflect how your actions and words impact others?
