Below are my comments to the following post of my former manager:
What do I miss? (working 100% at home)
Definitely ! I used to do that a lot:
- explaining my ideas to developers, so they could implement what want not blindly but with passion. Now working from home I spent twice more time via zoom and still not sure I ignite that passion;
- proving my new and innovative concepts to my boss. Now they have to listen or reading my Ruglish, respectively my ability to convince accepting my ideas is declining...
Less impactful hallway or over-the-cube-wall conversations can also solve problems and create bonds.....
I feel that too. But in DevOps-Adgile-Slack-zoom environment I am getting used to get what I need. My hobby to be always on-line blogging-presenting (Now it is Virtual Convergence/Seminar) helps a lot.
