I've been meaning to write about this topic for a while. When I first founded our firm, I was suprised to see there was a lot of excitement about the virutal office (yay!) bot not a ton of practical information about how to do it (eek!). Fast forward 4 years and I'm ready to dish my own version of dos and don'ts of the virtual office.
Maintain an up-to-date team calendar.
This is more than just when your meetings are. This is when you're in and out of the office, where you're going to be sitting, etc. The virutal office allows us the flexibility to work whenever and wherever suit us best.
And this is totally essential in creative work. If you're a night owl and want to work from 6-11? Great. Like working from a noisy cafe? Me too. Just jot that down on the team calendar, so everyone knows not to bother you at 9 AM.
