Extroverts Working Remotely

Extroverts thrive in an energetic and frenetic work environment filled with people. Peace, quietness and solitude, while being an introvert’s dream, can drive an extrovert into distraction.

There are many ways for extroverts to enjoy and thrive on the new reality of remote working.

Daily Morning Huddle with Coffee Chats

An informal daily huddle where everyone is face-to-face in a virtual meeting, holding a fresh cup of coffee is a great way to start the day with purpose and energy. It requires everyone to wake up early, get dressed and make a cup of coffee.

A morning routine is great for productivity too.

Dance Parties And Music Playlists

Infusing music and dance in your breaks can add a sense of pleasure in the otherwise dull and drab routine, enhancing the immediate virtual surrounding of the extroverts.

Meetups

Earlier, meetups used to be a great way for remote workers to catch up and have a dinner party while discussing the problems and issues at work.

Nowadays, these sessions have to be virtual, but can accommodate priority setting and topic-specific breakout sessions.

Regular Stretch Breaks

Integrate regular movement into your sitting-whole-day routine, and give your workdesk a break.

Indulge in the many at-home exercise routines and dancing sessions available online, and share them with a coworker, so you do it together.

Learning Together

Learning together, be it an online class, cooking session or even a meeting to share skills and expertise to the entire company is a great way to connect with your coworkers.

Spend Time With Your Loved Ones

Being stranded at home with limited options to go out can have a positive side-effect.

The energy we used to connect with our coworkers can now be used to reconnect with old buddies, ex-coworkers, and even our relatives which we had forgotten in our daily work routine.

Express your Feelings

Being honest about your feelings is advisable, as remote working isn’t for everyone. Some thrive on it, others will struggle. It’s a good idea to seek help and support. Communication is always good.

Working is From Anywhere

WFH (Work From Home) eventually means you are working from coffee shops, parking lots, from your car while driving, and almost anywhere you can log in to your laptop or communicate on your phone.

No one knows where you are and what you are doing, and that can be an advantage, but also can be misused. 

Start Early and Mimic Office Time

The schedule that makes you start early, and mimic the office hours works best, as you end up being free earlier too. However, night owls may find working at night to be more productive or comfortable for them.

Maintaining a schedule in a routine, while incorporating regular exercise with it, works best.

Real-time communication drawbacks

While real-time communication inside of a team might lead to solving faster some issues, it also has various disadvantages. 

For instance, having your colleagues come to ask you questions to which you feel pressured to answer on the spot leads to you being continuously interrupted, which results in being less productive and feeling stressed or even getting a burnout, as you try to do everything in proper time.

The asynchronous workplace

When the employees are provided with control as to when they are willing to communicate with their co-workers, there are many advantages that emerge. 

For instance, having the freedom to decide exactly how your working day should look like leads to more satisfied employees as well as to better communication within the team. Further benefits vary from feeling less stressed due to better planning to greater transparency and more efficient work.
