A major shift is underway that’s fundamentally altering when, where, and how work occurs. As organizations confront changing realities of this new normal, hybrid teams are emerging as the primary way work will get done and goals accomplished. However, saying your company is a hybrid workplace is much easier that creating an effective one.
According to a recent McKinsey survey, nine out of ten organizations plan to combine remote and on-site work going forward. If you are one of them, then this new way of working can be challenging for your managers and team leaders.
For example, it will likely put an even greater strain on them because they will need to continue managing and supporting all their employees as well as building new ways for their people to engage, communicate, coordinate, and collaborate regularly and purposefully. They will also be struggling to craft an efficient hybrid strategy, work environment and culture that provides both flexibility and, most importantly, accountability. As a result, their leadership effectiveness is at risk unless they know how to manage, in a hybrid environment.
While there’s no one-size-fits-all model for a hybrid workforce, in this webinar your organization and leaders will learn specific best practices for managing the people, the priorities and the performance of their teams which will result in a healthier, more productive work environment.
Why you should Attend:
Managing a hybrid team presents several challenges for managers, supervisors, and team leaders. Some of these challenges might feel familiar if you’ve been managing remote teams. For instance, there could be an “us versus them” undercurrent among colleagues. There could also be team communication, engagement, and coordination issues that affect the quality and quantity of work being performed.
Some questions you need to consider.
- What will the workweek look like? Number of days in office; days remote?
- With hybrid work, how do I keep my team connected, engaged and productive?
- How do I ensure individual and team accountability with everyone on different schedules?
- What protocols need to be put in place to ensure that everyone is in sync and working together?
- How do I ensure that everyone clearly understand their individual roles and how their work impacts others?
If you are wondering how to reap the benefits of leading a hybrid team, while navigating around the potential pitfalls, then start by recognizing that you, like many leaders and managers, are in uncharted territory. In this webinar you will learn answers to questions and concerns you may have as well as discover key strategies and best practices to effectively manage the hybrid workplace.
