2. work from home tips #2: Communication : The most important element that increases complexity / anxiety is communication. Most of the intrinsic communication that used to happen face to face, now needs to become explicit.
Face to Face – Can assume few gestures, understanding, confidence level.
Work from Home – Need to verbally communicate / assume level of confidence.
Being clear in communication is very important, taking confirmations and confirming clarity in understanding, listening to others, making notes and reviewing it etc. would all help in making communication better. #zohocliq #zohoworkplace

Hence the time for daily stand ups, summarizing the day, productivity tools have been used to measure. So, setting the expectation of work, percentage of completion who’s going to do what, when, how and review helps in setting right expectations to all stake holders so that heart burns, credibility etc. are spared. #zohoprojects #zohopeople
