In this increasingly connected world, you really can work from anywhere. Here I am last week, working on the hop – literally, as I walk. Walking meetings are my favourite way to get things done. They keep things brisk and to the point, and can get you to your next appointment. It’s a win-win.
I’ve never been one to work from an office. I get most of my work done very remotely – from Necker Island. When I’m travelling, my team is only a click or a call away, and I can usually find a way to tweet wherever I am.
I'm a big advocate of letting your team work from wherever suits them best – whether that’s at home, in the office, or on the top of a mountain.
Obviously it helps if your company realises this and offers people the option of flexible working. In this day and age, companies that adhere to strict 9 to 5 in-office working policies are getting left behind.
Flexible working gives people the freedom to take care of business the best way possible for them. It’s time for that all business leaders realise: if you treat people like the smart and capable adults they are, they will make smart and capable decisions that will benefit your business.
