Home Based Working Strategy


Making home-based working work

Here at Bright Sparks Coaching (Cambridge), we know the highs and lows of home-based professionals and business people.

Our Home-Based Professional Coaching Programme is here to help you and your business create a positive transition toward happy, effective and successful experience for you at home at work.

With that in mind lets say you are floating somewhere on cloud nine by securing perhaps a new role, working flexibly, the business is expanding or starting your own business that allows you to work from a home-base. If this is the case many congratulations.

Home Based Working Conundrum

Working from a home-base is one of those concepts, like eating very large ice cream on a very hot day, that sounds great in theory. If you don’t approach it carefully, methodically and industriously, you’ll end up in a bit of a pickle and possibly very sticky.

Our Bright Sparks Home-Based Professional Coaching programme supports organisations, HR, professionals, self-employed and business people to make working at or from home happy and effective for all concerned.

Home Based Working Transition

My research into home-based working highlights that the transition is fraught with psychological & practical pitfalls. Here are a few of the difficulties that business & professional people starting out working from a home base can experience –

  • A sense of detachment and isolation from colleagues and associates on a day-to-day basis
    • Plans may need to put into place to negate the affects of being isolated whilst at work
  • Elevated stress levels due to lack of support.
  • Little social interaction and control over space for your work at home
  • Lack of a commute to help you move from home to work and back again.
    • Leads to presenteeism & issues well-being issues
  • Negotiating with the family for work time and home time
  • Health & Safety at home at work
  • Lack of motivation from the sense of direction from colleagues of clients
