Over the past few years many teams have been forced to make the move to Hybrid and Remote working. We’ve shown that we can do it. But the move has been reactive and under extreme pressure. As a result, most individuals and organizations are simply surviving in our hybrid and remote teams, when we could be thriving.
Hybrid and remote working brings a host of new challenges for individuals, managers and organizational leaders. How do we stay connected? How do we stay productive? How do we innovate and collaborate well? How do we foster networks? How do we help our new starters grow? How do we make the best uses of our time? How do we support the wellbeing of our teams and ourselves?
There are no simple answers to these questions, but there are things that we can do, starting with increasing our understanding of how hybrid and remote working affects performance, group dynamics and wellbeing. From these building blocks, we can make changes to the ways that we work, manage and lead.
