Working productively in the home office requires discipline. Structures and routines can help. People with a higher level of the Hogan dimension prudence could benefit, because they can easily plan their work in advance or structure their day. How do I structure my everyday life optimally? How do I balance my work, home schooling, childcare, caring for relatives and my hobbies? What do I need in order to develop suitable everyday structures and routines?
Stable behavior even under pressure helps people to keep a cool head. A medium level of the Hogan Dimension adjustment is the keyword here. These people find it easy not to become action-orientated and hectic, but also not to be indifferent to the pressure situation. They look at the situation, analyze, identify priorities and can thus identify new opportunities for the future. They also remain patient with their fellow human beings, which for example also supports family peace, since everyone is at home and one has to wear several hats – parents, teachers, cook, cleaning staff and child caretakers – at the same time.
Sociability describes the extent to which one person is communicative and accessible to others. A great risk for employees and managers is to become absent in the current situation and appear no longer present and approachable. People with a high degree of sociability find it easier in the current situation to ensure the necessary communication and to show presence from the home office. However, people with a low level of social sociability should see the situation as an opportunity to invest more energy in establishing contacts at this time. Instead of always writing e-mails, one could use the telephone more often and check the well-being of the other person. This can already be a good start to appear more approachable.
