Regardless of whether this is on your own blog or as a guest on a news website, well-researched and well-written thought leadership pieces serve to get your brand out there, even when you may not actually have anything new at that moment to sell. And now is the time to be writing thought leadership pieces, because, with most of the developed world locked down at home, there’s a greater appetite for insightful articles and content that can help illuminate how we move forward from this challenging period.

Check out Hassan's #wfh experience as well.

It took a week for Hassan to adjust to working from home.
He soon realised that there was sudden increase in pressure both from within the company and the clients, coupled with a lower sense of achievement which can easily bring about depression.

He admits that when you work from home, you can easily end a busy day feeling like you've not accomplished much. However, the upside from this whole experience has been the little things such as realizing that he can set his own hours, take breaks the comprise of hanging out with family, as well as snacking and napping...

This week check out our boss Helena's #wfh experience. Being a creature of habit, working from home initially wasn't the easiest thing.

She worried whether the team would cope and whether clients would understand the necessity of WFH- that it wasn't business as usual.

Additionally, the fact that there were friends and colleagues losing their jobs or closing businesses also didn't help much.
She eventually found her groove when she begrudgingly committed to only worrying about things she could change.
One of the benefits of the whole working from home experience for her is that it has made her get closer to the business as a whole and to both the Uganda and Rwanda teams that she has daily meetings with via calls...
