Managing the Hybrid New Normal

Business in America has undergone a significant transition over the two years of the COVID crisis and most organizations are scrambling to understand the impact of that on their operations.

  • My staff is half in the office and half at home. How do I effectively manage them?
  • We conduct many meetings via Teams or Zoom. Is the impact on the staff the same as conducting them in person?
  • How do I deal with employees whose circumstances may have changed over the past two years, and who require accommodations?
  • How do I balance the needs of my employees in a way that is fair and equitable to all, while still accomplishing the organization’s goals?

And the truth is that at this moment in history, no one has all the right answers. So how do you uncover the right answers for your organization? The short answer: Ask it.

In this one-day workshop, students learn how to use the concepts of Conversational Leadership and the World Café to actively listen to their most credible resources – their staff – and how to create a welcoming environment for hearing their thoughts and experiences.
The result is data that provides an honest look into the problems and challenges faced by your organization and can be used to create solutions that address those challenges.
