Abstract:


    In “WFH Leadership: How to Lead Effectively While Working From Home,“ Maggie Oh will cover how her workstyle and work philosophy changed during the shelter-in-place order; her process changes and techniques; and how to care for others in a time of social distancing. Much of your day as a manager or team lead can be spent in meetings, chatting with folx, brainstorming, strategizing, and managing careers – all these activities have a social/face-to-face aspect where interactions and non-verbal feedback is foundational. At the time of writing this proposal, we are in the midst of a global health crisis. All over the world, non-essential employees are told to shelter-in-place (SIP) and work from home (WFH). How does a manager or team lead do their job effectively in this new work setting? In light of these circumstances, Maggie Oh postures that the soft skills and empathy are what teammates are looking for and need in their worklife. It is not simply enough to rely on hard-skills and recurring meetings alone. However it’s also not simply enough to “just chat” – a delicate balance should be socialized in order to establish service level agreements (SLAs) for oneself, team, and community. This talk is a follow up to her talk at Siggraph Asia 2019, “An Atypical Career Path: Film to Games to AR to R&D- How Engineering & Art Enhance Each Other.” Keywords: leadership, WFH, working from home, shelter in place, SIP, process, social distancing, COVID19, remote work, grief, management, soft skills.
