It is even more demanding in crisis and when working from home: family needs, childcare, household chores, personal balance, dealing with stress, satisfaction and well-being add up. The good news: That sandwich is managable!

Professor Tammy Allen from the University of South Florida and coach Mark Poteet have compiled the top 10 tips for excellence, with which you can keep a step-by-step and systematic overview and lead effectively from your home office.
