Maximizing your own productivity

In order to manage your productivity, you must first understand how to manage your energy. Don't overbook yourself with meetings so much that you feel like you're drowning in work.

Remote work can affect our motivation levels but with the rise of hybrid working times, having in-office time will pump up the times that we feel unmotivated.

Set Clear Expectations

A lack of clarity can lead to issues in hybrid teams; if employees don’t know who is responsible for what or what’s expected of them, both individually and as a team, it can cause conflict.

So, if you want to better manage conflict on your team, make sure you’re setting crystal clear expectations from the get-go—particularly if your team is still adjusting to working in a hybrid environment.

The disadvantages of remote working
  • Decreased collaboration: Remote working has led to a 23% decrease in team collaboration, which means less teamwork and development on assigned projects. 
  • Decreased productivity: You can work whenever and wherever, but many times when our minds wander. 
  • Lack of inspiration: When you're surrounded by people all day, every day, there's a lot of inspiration that comes from that environment. 
  • Lack of work/life balance: Remote working can make it very easy to overwork yourself simply because you can't tell when your day at work is finished. 
  • Increased distractions: There are tons of tasks that can steal away attention, such as household chores or errands, that can decrease productivity while working from home.
  • Reduced relationships with coworkers: It can also lead to a lack of relationships with coworkers, which is especially harmful to managers who do not get the opportunity to create stronger bonds within their teams. 
  • Isolation: The lack of human connection can make employees feel isolated and alone.

For the whole idea of remote work to actually work, you have to develop a remote culture for your team.
And that means having a shared context: everyone plays by the same rules, you have to understand your team's practices and everybody has to have an overall feeling that you are working in an equitable environment.
