Struggling to build stronger work relationships?

Whether you’re working from home or share a break room, there’s one tip that works across the board.

Be yourself.

Often, people act differently online than they do in-person. This creates an emotional disconnect.

Authentic communication will allow people to get to know the real you.

Here are a couple of ideas to get you started:

• Engage in appropriate small talk before the start of a video meeting.

• Share a picture from a special event via email.

The result is a stronger relationship with your team.

You can have strong remote work relationships. I share advice on how in my course, Building Relationships While Working from Home, on LinkedIn Learning.
