Overthinkers do not always enjoy remote work as they can become anxious about what is happening in the workplace—but some strategies can help them better cope with remote work.
This article by Bryan Lufkin, writing for BBC News makes the following points:
- The ‘overthinker’ tend to over-analyse events and the possible adverse effects of such events.
- Overthinkers need regular reassurance that everything is OK.
- Lack of face-to-face communication between managers and remote workers can cause workplace ambiguity and uncertainty
- Relying on email and chats can worsen the problem as “text is not always the best form of communication.”
- Phone calls and skype/zoom one-on-one can help reduce anxiety for remote working overthinkers.
