Team Building in Uncertain Times

Since you last heard from us (a mere week ago), office culture has, changed, shall we say. The SFW team is all doing well, under the circumstances. And if you’re in your respective corners like us, and would like some advice on how to make working from home… well, work… from home... may we suggest listening to our episodes, “The Secret to Managing Your Remote Team” and “How to Stay Sane When You’re Working From Home.” Today we’re gonna talk a little bit about how COVID-19 is affecting the state of work. But then, in a sharp left turn, we have something much more fun planned. We’ve invited back some of our favorite callers to get an update on how they’re doing!First up is listener Elyse, who called back in August of last year. Elyse “caught feelings” for a man in Denmark and wanted to know what her options were to work in that country. We check back in to see how that love affair is, or isn’t working out. Then, Liz and Rico catch up with listener Steven, who called back in December. Steven originally wanted advice on how to leave his day job for a career he’s really passionate about. We’ll see if he made the leap.Finally, we’ll hear again from listener Matthew, who called back in January. Matthew reached out originally to vent about a passive-aggressive department-wide newsletter that highlighted where he and his colleagues messed up on the job. We find out if he’s still dealing with manager feedback on-paper. As always, if you've got a burning workplace question and need some advice, don't hesitate to send us an email (that email, unsurprisingly, is also Safe@Wondery.com). You can also find us on Twitter, we’re @SafeFor Work. Don't forget to follow our sage hosts on Twitter, too; they're @SSLiz and @RicoGagliano. And if you want to check out Liz’s other show, Satellite Sisters, you can find it on Apple Podcasts or Art19. From our sponsors:ZipRecruiter - Try ZipRecruiter FOR FREE at ZipRecruiter.com/safe.FreshBooks - Get a free 30-day trial of FreshBooks right now at freshbooks.com/SAFE and enter SAFEFORWORK in the how did you hear about us section.Sakara - Get 20% off your first order when you go to Sakara.com/SAFE or enter code SAFE at checkout.
