In part two of our Leading in hybrid world webinar series, we focused on rebooting and developing trust in a hybrid environment. Leading in a hybrid world – Part 2: Rebooting and developing trust:
The pandemic brought with it a sudden shift to remote work for many companies. Some organisations were able to quickly adapt, while others struggled to keep up. As we move forward, it’s important to take stock of what worked well and what didn’t during the pandemic.
One of the key takeaways from our recent webinar Leading in a hybrid world – Part 2: Rebooting and developing trust was the importance of communication. In a hybrid world, where some employees are working remotely or in a hybrid setting and others are in the office, effective communication becomes even more critical. Leaders need to ensure that communication channels are open and that everyone is kept in the loop.
Another vital aspect of rebooting is prioritisation. In a time where resources may be limited, it’s important to focus on what matters most. Leaders need to take a step back and assess what initiatives are critical to the success of the organisation and prioritise those accordingly.
Trust is another crucial element in the hybrid world. As remote work becomes more prevalent, it’s important for leaders to trust their employees to get the job done, regardless of where they’re working from.
One way to develop trust is by setting clear expectations. Leaders should communicate what’s expected of employees in terms of work output and communication. They should also ensure that employees have the tools and resources necessary to do their jobs effectively.
Another important aspect of trust is transparency. Leaders need to be open and honest about the challenges the organisation is facing and the steps being taken to address them. Employees will appreciate the transparency and be more likely to trust their leaders as a result.
The hybrid world presents many challenges, but also many opportunities. By rebooting and developing trust, organisations can position themselves for success in this new environment. Effective communication, prioritisation, setting clear expectations, and transparency are all critical components of achieving this success. As we continue to navigate hybrid working, it’s important for leaders to remain adaptable and open to change.
