Hybrid and Remote Working.

We can help you, your team and your organization have more productive and rewarding experiences of hybrid and remote working.

Thriving Hybrid Teams

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.

Hybrid Impacts

As more research is undertaken, it’s increasingly clear that hybrid can significantly impact individuals and organizations. In addition, different groups of people and organizations are affected in different ways. Some flourish and some languish in hybrid teams.

Areas of Focus

We focus our work on three main areas that the research shows are highly affected by hybrid working:

  • Colleague wellbeing,
  • Individual and team performance and productivity, and
  • Team relationships and dynamics

All of our seminars, workshops and programmes are designed to help leaders and managers improve wellbeing, performance and team relations and dynamics.

Improving Hybrid Working

We support organizations through a mix of online seminars, workshops, leadership sessions, team and individual coaching and surveys and colleague consultations.

Our seminars are highly informative and great for large numbers of colleagues. Our workshops are highly interactive, and work best for groups of between 10 and 30 participants. Our leadership sessions are very much designed for senior leadership teams who are thinking about challenges, strategies, behaviours and policies at an organizational level.

As different organizations have different needs, we provide three levels of support for hybrid working:

Foundation

Our foundation programme helps organizations invest in their colleagues and kickstart their hybrid effectiveness. It includes:

  • A one-hour seminar to help all colleagues improve their own wellbeing, performance and contribution to positive team dynamics.
  • A 2.5 hour workshop to help managers learn the basics of how to improve the wellbeing, performance and positive dynamics within their team.
  • A 2 hour leadership session to help senior colleagues reflect on the challenges that hybrid brings, and how to shape their organizational responses to them.

Advanced

Our advanced programme helps organizations take their hybrid working to the next level. In includes everything in foundation plus:

  • An additional 2.5-hour workshop for managers deep diving into best practice for improving hybrid team performance and productivity.
  • An additional 2.5 workshop for managers exploring and sharing tools to improve hybrid team dynamics, culture and ways of working.
  • An additional 2.5 workshop for managers sharing some of the main wellbeing challenges of hybrid, and exploring how to overcome them.

Bespoke

Our bespoke hybrid programme helps organizations shape the support they need to create thriving hybrid teams. It typically starts with colleague surveys and consultations, before progressing to a combination of bespoke or tailored seminars, workshops and leadership sessions. Depending on client needs, it can also include individual or team coaching, as well as the inclusion of further training on management or leadership.
