What was it like the first time you went out “socially”? It was a little unsettling for me, and it will be strange to wait for an elevator, go to the break room for coffee, and be with people who aren’t family. This is going to be different for each of us. We need to be prepared to see a hybrid workforce with people making different choices and as leaders we need to be attuned to people who are at different comfort levels for in-person gatherings and we need to be responsive to new, more flexible, work options. In this video I share ways to support new practices to provide our team mates a healthier work/life balance and realize that these new working models are strategic intents centered on aligning people with purpose while valuing their personal needs to create a productive and happy worker.
You set the tone with your team demonstrating respect, integrity, and connection. As different as every employee is so will the response be to a hybrid work model. You must be comfortable in leading the change knowing there isn’t a standard solution yet being intentional in creating a transparent, open space to work and live from. It’s going to be different going forward and embracing the hybrid framework will result in improved retention, engagement, and performance. If you would like to talk more about how this framework can be used in your organization let’s Zoom or send me an email and keep the conversation going! I’d enjoy talking with you about how we can partner to strategically develop your team. Use the contact button above or visit our web site!
