Video Tip: Tips for Working Productively From Home During This Difficult Time
Written by Lisa Montanaro | May 1, 2020

These are some strange times! Who would have ever thought we’d be hunkered down at home, all trying to get work done, tend to our families, stay safe and healthy, while watching (and stressing about!) a global crisis?

As a productivity consultant, I’m paying close attention to the way my clients, colleagues, and friends are handling this unique time. You might be experiencing difficulty staying focused and productive right now while working from home. While some of you may be the opposite and getting more done than ever! And others may need to just chill out right now and give yourself a free pass to do much much less.

Whatever your situation, I want to help! So I teamed up with my college pal, David Sarnoff, who is a leadership coach, and we made a video with tips and strategies for staying productive during this difficult time (with some additional tips on how to effectively lead a team and treat coworkers with compassion right now).

I hope that you find the information useful!

Helping others be the best versions of themselves gets me jazzed!

I’ve worn many hats in my lifetime—often at the same time—while enjoying fulfilling careers. I’ve been a performer, teacher, sign language instructor, lawyer, career counselor, law professor, coach, consultant, mediator, entrepreneur, speaker, trainer, writer, and author. 

I’m an eternal optimist and life-long learner, constantly researching ways to improve personal and professional effectiveness. And it brings me great joy to then pass on the results of that persistent curiosity to my clients and audiences. 

Of all the career hats I’ve been privileged to wear, my favorite is owner of this business since 2002. Why? Because it provides me the opportunity to work with wonderful organizational and individual clients. On any given day, I get to connect deeply with audiences, work with dedicated teams, improve workplaces, watch clients have a-ha moments, and know I’ve made a difference in their lives and careers. And that is very satisfying.
