Company-wide working agreements:

  • No meeting days and Focus time: is a day for focused work. It’s essentially a day each week with no meetings, so everyone can focus on getting things done.
    Also, another great practice is booking Focus Time throughout the week. A block of 2 hours inroad that allows concentrate without benign disturbed
  • Working Hours: A lot of teams are a mix of early birds and night owls. Therefore, is critical to set some boundaries and establish working hours where people can schedule meetings and calls.
  • Notifications: Encourage employees to pause notifications after working hours are over to disconnect from work — especially over the weekends.
  • Lunch Time: ask teams and employees to book a time to have proper lunch and respect this company-wide.

Roles & Priorities within teams

  • Daily or Weekly stand-ups: Where people get together and share projects and achievements.
  • Weekly promises or roundups: similar to the above but written — this is very useful for larger teams.
  • Task board: Set up a simple Kanban board and actively limit your work in progress.

In meetings and messaging etiquette

  • Meetings: when starting a meeting, don’t forget to take some time to do a small checking and acknowledge people’s state of mind. Also, sharing a small agenda will ensure that everyone makes the most of it and don’t see it as a waste of time.
  • Chat Platform: being part of groups on these platforms is the equivalent of recurring meetings. Asking employees to do a ‘groups cleanup’ for sure will reduce the time spend checking on meaningless conversations that generate noise and distraction. If a 30mins off-and-on chat conversation can be a five-minute phone call, then promote the call instead.
