5 Ways Telecommuters Can Prevent a Communication Breakdown

Sitting on your sofa to work while your cat rubs its face all over you is great, but missing out on important talks and getting all your information secondhand can be a frustration. Deb Ng writes a blog post about what telecommuters can do to stay fully informed. Set up regular meetings so that everyone is aware of the latest news. Take lots of notes so that if all else fails, you have something to fall back on to make a list of pertinent end-of-day updates for people. Keep a running nag list as well of things you are waiting on from people and have not received yet, because it is ultimately your responsibility to get what you need, even if that means sending the same passive aggressive email four times. Pretend you are a client and use a person’s assistant to help schedule appointments if that makes reaching a person easier. Lastly, take the initiative and start conversations on your own. Do not wait for solutions to come to you.
