HOW TO BUILD HEALTHY
HYBRID & REMOTE TEAMS
Building the culture, skill set and team dynamics required
for success in the ‘Work from Anywhere’ world
It’s not just Covid. Multiple different forces are all pointing to the same thing: the work from anywhere revolution is here to stay. And it’s much, much more than just about WHERE people work. It’s not even about WHEN they work. It’s a shift to an outputs driven workplace, with as much flexibility built into it as possible. The good news is that research from the past decade and more shows that companies that take the time to develop healthy hybrid and remote teams experience significant productivity gains, improved staff morale and increased profits. Almost without exception.
Our team at TomorrowToday Global has worked globally for two decades - never paying a cent in office rentals during that time. And during the Covid Lockdown, we’ve investigated models and frameworks that make sense of what we know to be true. This presentation or workshop shares five key ingredients every team requires: a sense of belonging, mastery, autonomy, generosity and purpose, and shows you how to build these into your teams.
For the team and the leaders
There are three key areas we need to consider in order to ensure that the work from home experiment actually works:
Most importantly, actually, is a shift in mindset. The biggest mistake people and teams make is to simply attempt to "take the office home". They try and duplicate the office environment in their homes. Some people even get "dressed up" to "go to work" in their home office. While this might be useful for a short while, it betrays an incorrect attitude about what working from home is about. More dangerous and damaging is the approach of many managers and leaders who want to micro-manage start and end times, capture screen time or impose rules on their teams that would be more appropriate to a face to face environment. Our team at TomorrowToday will show you a better way to ensure you get the productivity and responsiveness you're looking for, and share the three critical mindset shifts that will set you and your team up for success.
Only after we've dealt with these mindset shifts can we look at some of the practical realities of working from home and managing virtual teams. This session is filled with practical advice for both the individual in their home office, and the team dynamic of working as a virtual team. We look at everything from dealing with distractions to the technology implications of working remotely, and provide insights from our team's extensive experience over two decades of doing this successfully (and happily, we might add).
Finally, this session focuses on the role of the leader/manager and the team members, offering valuable insights and practical tips on developing a new culture, and leveraging the existing corporate culture for maximum effect in the virtual space.
We are engaged in the greatest future of work experiment in human history. What happens if it works?
