First time dad, getting ready to return to work after being out on paternity leave for ~5mths (mix of leave and vacation). Any advice on getting back into pre-baby productivity and efficiency? I’ve been out so long and Covid has changed so many things now, I feel like a new joiner having to adapt to a new WFH world. Thanks for any tips!
How do you make WFH work for you? Dealing with loneliness, inefficient communication with team, client, etc. thank you!
My firm recently announced that they were beginning a reservation system for hoteling starting February of 2022 for offices . We were told to clear out our offices by December 31,2022 . The lease is not up for renewal until June 2024 at which point they will look to reduce their office space due to a hybrid work model . My issue is what incentive do I have to make a reservation to go to an office when I can simply continue work from home hassle free. Any Thoughts and comments?

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
Overworked mom of two young kids and I’ve come to the realization that I have very few friends who live nearby. I’m the only one of my close circle who didn’t head to suburbs after kids and WFH has made me aware of how reliant I was on work friends for a social outlet. I’ve still got great friends I can call for anything but, really missing having girlfriends I can just meet up without planning a month in advance. Strategies for making new friends in middle age and with very little spare time?

Prior to covid I was a driven woman who was a top performer on my team. In the past 18 months I have really lost all motivation and have embraced being an average performer. I accept this because at 30, single and stagnant professionally I have come to the realization that I need to prioritize the things that I want in life and although I do want to continue to be financially successful I want a family- more. I am not sure if I should explore a flexible work arrangement

Please don’t waste someone’s time asking for a referral if someone else already gave you one. Most companies won’t let you have more than one referral and all you do is eat up someone’s time that is willing to help you out. It’s happened more than a few times now; just be honest that you want to learn more about a company / role and I’ll be just as willing to help you.
