Managing from Home. Tips and Experiences

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic knowledge workers around the world are being forced to work from home. Performing their tasks from home has turned out quite difficult for lots of them. Undoubtedly, MANAGING such employees remotely from your home is at least equally challenging. It's a bit like managing a geographically dispersed (virtual) team, with the extra complication that both parties (manager and employee) are now working exclusively at home.

Most of us have been struggling lately with this situation which will continue to exist at least for quite some time to come. Let's have some fun and share and collect our "manage-from-home" horror stories, pitfalls, tips and best practices - we will all benefit. You may react anonymously if you prefer. What have been your experiences?
