Accessibility is a Raise Your Visibility Indicator and I define accessibility as the degree in which colleagues can reach you and benefit from the interaction.
What is accessibility hurdle #3?
If I have an office, my door is likely closed.
What can you do?
– Leave your office door open all the time and assess the impact. Start small – do this for a day, and then two days, and then a week.
– Consider doing some of your work away from your office so that the door is open more. Schedule time to use a conference room to get some of your work done. This way, at least your door is not closed.
– Schedule times when you need to close your door so that you colleagues know when they can see you. For example, conduct your “closed door” work between 10:00am and noon or 3:00pm and 5:00pm.
