I’m going to try to make a trend of this, doing it before work in the morning.
Day three of Telecommuting: My co-workers are starting to suspect I’m actually another cat.
Honestly, I think Oli may be worried and Merit thinks I’m just sick again, and Theo just ignores everyone during the day.
But I was going to talk about supervision.
For me, this is pretty much exactly the same as being at work – because my boss is always remote (well, a few times a year he visits the office, but with the border to Canada closed, it’s going to be a while). For most of the admins, there won’t be a lot of difference, because the professor that supervises them is either usually just in their office or not even that.
I mean, except the one extrovert in the office. I imagine she’s going to go mad.
(we did Meyers-Briggs at Admin Excellence Training summer of ’18. She was like “OH this explains so much” when everyone else at the table came back Introvert.)
But with all that, I still found myself checking the calendar to see if my boss was “at a conference” (he’s got at least two that are tele-conferences now.) yesterday.
As far as I can tell, no.
But Oli did his best to fill in boss’s virtual absence anyway by sitting on my desk and staring at me. Good kitty. I feel well supervised.
How about you? How do your supervisors feel the need to fill in that gap?
