With interactive exercises, self-assessments, breakout sessions, action planning and instructor-led training, this program brings classroom-quality learning to to participants - wherever they may be.

Charting a new course

There is no time-tested model for successful hybrid teams. Without a map to fall back on, leaders must create an environment that surfaces challenges and work with their people to come up with solutions they can commit to. While the tools of navigation haven’t changed, leaders need to apply their skills in new ways as they chart their course.

Leaders will examine the specific advantages and challenges of hybrid work and learn strategies for building clarity on how their team is expected to operate, a framework for holding effective debrief conversations to develop skills and confidence, and an approach to ensure people feel recognized for their contributions.

Upon program completion, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the environmental demands and assets of a hybrid workplace
  • Practice holding a developmental mindset, leaning into emotions, and using imagery as a source of motivation
  • Apply a system for demonstrating empathy and creating psychological safety
  • Build team cohesion by collaboratively creating guidelines for hybrid work
  • Implement best practices for ensuring team members have equitable access to their leader
  • Characterize and employ strategies for holding effective hybrid meetings
  • Reinforce and redirect behaviours in one-on-one conversations using questioning, active listening, and feedback
  • Apply a methodology to make recognition a part of daily routine
