A Remarkable Master Class

Building Effective Hybrid Teams

16 Lessons

2 Hours 15 Minutes


Leadership has always been complex - you are trying to reach new and important outcomes and do it with human beings, who are all different and inherently amazing and messy. And as the future of work continues to evolve, leadership will become even more complex. 

More and more organizations are moving from working in the office to working from home - either part-time or full-time. Some may come to the office everyday; some may never come to the office; some may come a few days a week or month. The reality is a hybrid workplace is inevitable for many of us.

And while there are big opportunities in the new future of hybrid work, it will also be even more complex in many ways than being either completely remote or completely in person.

Hybrid teams bring new expectations (again). Expectations about how work is done, communicated and much more will need to be determined or negotiated.

Hybrid teams bring rotating schedules. When you have team members alternating between home and office every day or week, work routines will change. When do you have meetings? Who needs to be there for this discussion?

Hybrid teams bring changes in team dynamics. If you thought team dynamics were hard while everyone was working from home, they will get even more complex in a world of hybrid work – especially if your model has some people in the office regularly and some rarely or ever there.

These are just a few of the changes that are in the future for hybrid teams and organizations. And the good news is that they can all be overcome, and a hybrid workplace can provide great value to the organization and the individual team members. The important thing is to recognize and address these challenges right from the start. 

In this Master Class, you will learn what those differences are and what you can do as a leader – and a teammate – to create better relationships, communication, trust, and results on your hybrid team.

You will learn: 

  • The challenges and possibilities of hybrid teams
  • How leading a hybrid team is different from leading a remote team (and how it’s not.)
  • What builds commitment and trust in any team, and how to accomplish that in a remote environment
  • How to build relationships that create team cohesion between virtual and on-site team members
  • Tools and techniques for creating better communication and great working relationships 
  • How to develop an action plan for leading your remote/hybrid teams more effectively

Everywhere you look, the picture is clear. The future of work will include hybrid teams. Now is the time to embrace that fact and prepare to thrive in that working environment.
