A hoop, held by two dancers and screening a third.

Everyone’s trying to figure out how to make the new hybrid office work. In many companies, the transition to hybrid is a mess. Leaders try to make it work for everyone, and yet all they get back is deep frustration and strife. If you’re wondering how to cook up the magic sauce for your hybrid office, then tune into this episode of WorkLife with Adam Grant. You’ll come out of this with new confidence that you can make it work.

What to expect from the resource.

Grant offers a roadmap for developing hybrid models that work. What’s more, he and his interview partners share actionable tips for leaders. You’ll discover that one model fits not all. What’s sensible for one type of company, makes no sense for another. And Grant makes out 3 different company types. Here are three examples.

1) In a call centre many independent players hardly work together at all.

2) At a manufacturer’s assembly line one player needs to pass the baton to the next with exact timing.

3) In a design lab, whole teams constantly play ball back and forth in real time.

The form and degree of interaction demands more or less getting together face-to-face.

What we love about it.

“The office should no longer be a destination. It should be a tool. Digital tools should not just be regarded as technology. They should be regarded as a place for community as well.

Thought provoking statements like this made our day when listening to this episode. It makes so much sense. You’ll find out why when you listen to this episode.

Why it matters to leadership in organisations.

The question is not how many days you want people in the office and how many at home. As a leader, the question you need to ask is how you should lead for collaboration in a hybrid world. Listen in if you want to find out how to

  • Lead so that people can feel both your digital and your physical presence.
  • Deal with the conflict between granting full individual choice and coordination for community and collaboration.
  • Increase the level of inclusion and decrease the level of stress across the office.
