Built In Colorado: Live Your Best Remote Work Life feat. Location3
Location3’s Director of Marketing Technology, Jim Halligan has worked remotely for five years. He shares his advice with Built In Colorado on creating work-life boundaries, meditation, and doubling down on communication efforts.
Here’s a highlight from the interview, posted originally on Built In Colorado –
What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned about remote work?
Put the effort in to be an excellent communicator. Get comfortable with your webcam, stay on top of your Slack channels, be poignant with your emails and try to avoid clutter. Speak up on video conferences and calls; be assertive. Successful remote work requires you to master all these mediums. This is something that I learned early on, and I’m always re-evaluating my effectiveness as new ways of communicating evolve.
