Since the COVID-19 outbreak is at its peak and most countries are experiencing a period of lockdown, offices/workplaces are shut down. Most people are working from home. It is common to experience sadness, panic, anxiety and arguments with those you are locked down with.

Management is the process of setting and reaching objectives in an efficient manner. Management is the art of getting things done. Having effective management skills includes time management, being organised, and using resources effectively.

You might be feeling that your work is getting hampered due to your inability to manage effectively. Here are a few helpful tips for effective management that shall be practised:

  • Enjoy your work

Work is worship and should not be considered a burden. Put all your heart into your work. Your work is not only fetching you money but also keeps you occupied enough leaving you with lesser time to panic.

  • Incorporate new ideas

Working from home could be a real stressor as the house might not provide you with the work environment that you need. Don’t sit depressed due to this rather try changing the area where you work or try to be away from television. Your dining table or even your balcony can be your temporary office.

  • Communicate effectively

If you feel your teammates are not cooperating, talk to them. If you feel your subordinates are not reporting on time talk to them. If your manager/ supervisor is putting too much pressure on you talk to him/her. Don’t assume things effective communication will always bring clarity and will make things smooth for you and others.

  • Be consistent

Don’t keep delaying your work just because it’s not due immediately. Procrastination is common especially when you are in your comfort zone but don’t let it affect t your work and productivity.

  • Set sub-goals

If you find it difficult to achieve targets or accomplish a goal, you may divide it into various small sub-goals. Sub-goals won’t only help you to achieve your target but also assist you in keeping a check on your progress.

  • Be patient with your family members

Your aged granny or even parents might not be able to provide you personal space and keep interfering but don’t burst at them. All they want is your wellness.

REMEMBER! You are not the only one who is overwhelmed by the situation. Your co-workers might also be going through a lot. Keep checking on each other and support each other not just about work updates.

Stay inside, stay safe!
