Penny Zenker - The Productivity Zone: Stop the Tug of War with Time

Six Pitfalls Employers Face with Offsite Workers and How to Avoid Them



How your organization communicates and supports your team during these difficult times is an opportunity to build trust and engagement among employees. Like any major change, people will fall into two major categories: the Stress Response, which is fight, flight, or freeze mode where productivity suffers; or the Challenge Response, where they rise to the challenge by creating an opportunity to become more productive – which in turn will create value in the long run. The choice is yours.

The webinar will heighten your awareness to the biggest pitfalls you may face, when your attention is diverted due to the current, organizational change with teams working from home. We will also discuss ways to avoid those pitfalls by creating a productive environment and to invest the time and energy into other work habits that will be changing over time. The value you create at this time will continue to reap benefits long after the virus is gone.

Attendees will learn

  • How to be ready for Infrastructure challenges
  • To use the change in work environment as an opportunity to optimize workflows
  • How to communicate effectively in a crisis
  • How to avoid micromanagement during times of uncertainty
  • To reboot your meeting culture
