In this engaging, interactive, and entertaining presentation, you as a Vistage member will dramatically improve your ability to become a hybrid work leader using evidence-based cognitive science techniques. Many leaders rely on traditional office-centric collaboration and management styles in managing hybrid teams. Yet research conclusively demonstrates that, instead of incrementally improving on the old-school office-centric approach, the best outcomes in managing hybrid teams comes from adopting a flexible hybrid-first work model. Doing so results in much higher retention, productivity, engagement, innovation, collaboration, cost savings, and risk mitigation. A hybrid-first model involves best practices adapted specifically to hybrid work contexts. Such best practices include asynchronous brainstorming, remote coworking, virtual water coolers, weekly performance evaluations, addressing proximity bias, and a culture of "Excellence from Anywhere." This training offers case studies and best practices that you need to most effectively manage hybrid staff. Through adopting the methods from this training, your team will excel in retention, productivity, innovation, collaboration, cost savings, and risk management, thus enabling you to become a hybrid leader in our increasingly-disrupted future of work.
