COVID-19 Commercials – A united message or simply a lack of creativity?

You’ve probably seen a few COVID-19 TV commercials by now, maybe even shed a few tears. Empty roads, parked airplanes, deserted cities, playgrounds with no kids, you name it. If the location once had people in it, it is now being shown as empty with some sombre piano music concurrently nourishing our auditory senses and reminding us what we are all missing. Each commercial then shifts gears and moves into a more positive tone, usually mentioning the fact that we are all in this together and encouraging us that the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel will soon be visible. Most end off with thanks and appreciation for our health care workers (well-deserved, of course).

6 not-so-conventional tips for working from home

It’s been quite interesting reading the influx of posts about people adapting to their new reality of working from home as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a consultant running my own business, I’ve been working primarily from home for over a decade now. About 80% of my work time is spent in my home office and the remainder at in-person client meetings, delivering speeches and running workshops. Whenever I’m asked for advice regarding working remotely I always tend to start by mentioning that there is no one-size-fits-all approach. You need to optimize your workspace and workday for you.
