Hybrid working has given us an opportunity to redesign our days, even our lives, if we wanted to. It’s about greater flexibility and trust. With the rise in hybrid working globally, clients have been asking about the new rules of engagement.
For example, how do we collaborate effectively when we’re not side by side? What can we do to be more human in a hybrid world? What are the rules around in-person meetings? How do we stay connected when we see each other less?
You can’t watch a video or read a book about ‘hybrid working’ and know how to do it. Not least because each team’s and each person’s experience is unique to them. There’s no magic solution or set of steps.
Instead, it’s about recognising individuality, having some tricky conversations, addressing the elephants in the room, and working on some of the difficult practicalities until you all know what you’re doing.
