Hi, I’m Dr Jenny Brockis
Creating Thriving Teams and Leaders
I’m an award-winning keynote speaker, a trained medical practitioner, a certified physician in lifestyle medicine and the author of the bestselling book: Smarter Sharper Thinking.
I have a question…
Are you working well from home?
While working from home has been a growing phenomenon increasing by 159% between 2005 and 2017, the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the need for employees to adapt quickly and effectively to a change in their working environment.
When done well, working from home can be efficient and of benefit to everyone, but a number of challenges need to be addressed to make this happen.
I’m working from home because of COVID-19. They said it would also be good for business. More productivity, less distractions. Meanwhile… I can’t stop taking photos of my dog!
After starting to work from home, I rarely went out and my anxiety went up 10 fold. I’m now making changes but I need some advice. How do I keep calm and stay social?
I find there is no gulf between work and personal time. If I can’t sleep, I’ll start work at 5 am and work through to 5 pm. I know it’s not sustainable but at least I’m being productive, right?
Webinar Series: Working Well from Home
Working from home can seem fun and different but changing up the work environment on a larger scale with little time for preparation can have some drawbacks.

2. Identifying the common major challenges to working from home and those for your particular industry.
• Isolation and loneliness
• Time management
3. Creating a plan that incorporates getting the environment right, ensuring the appropriate resources are available and security considerations.
4. Establishing agreed protocols to boost productivity and efficiency while avoiding procrastination, distraction or overwork.
5. Key essentials to everyone’s physical and mental wellbeing.
