There's a pretty good chance your work life has changed in the last year. Many of us moved from working in the office to working from home. That was a big change for many people to adapt to – working apart from each other.
And from the time we closed offices, many have also been waiting for a return to normal. And while no one can be certain what the workplace will look like in the future, one thing is clear – it will be different than it used to be.
It’s likely that more than half of all organizations will have a more complex hybrid workplace in the coming months. And that's why we're excited to release The Future of Work Mini Webinar Series. Facilitated by Kevin Eikenberry and Wayne Turmel, co-founders of The Remote Leadership Institute, this series of five short webinars is designed to help you and your organization successfully transition to this new world of work.
The decisions that organizations make about hybrid work in the coming weeks/months will have a lasting impact on their results and culture. This Series will help you to think about these monumental decisions now in order to prepare for and be ready for your future. Registration is completely FREE! All of the webinars will be recorded and your complimentary registration gives you access to the replays as well!
Here's a look at the five webinars:
Team Building After COVID: Keys to Rebuilding a Hybrid Team
April 16, 3:00 – 3:30 pm ET
How strong are your work teams? Are you the same kind of teammate working remotely as you were in the office? As we look to returning to the office, our teams will look different. More teams will be a hybrid of remote and co-located workers. And what about new team members that have been added since we started working from home? How do we build teams and integrate new team members in this hybrid environment?
In the second webinar, you'll learn:
- How hybrid working will change the way your team works together
- The most common mistakes people on hybrid teams make
- Questions to ask yourself and your team
Designing the Future of Work for Your Organization
April 20, 3:00 – 3:30 pm ET
How will you determine the future of work for your organization? Who will you include and what will be your criteria? How you make these decisions and how you build those plans will make a big difference in the success of your transition to the future of work. In this short to-the-point, practical and interactive mini-webinar , we'll share the questions you need to be asking, and help guide your approach – including introducing a new tool to help you through it.
You'll learn how to:
- Plan your decision-making approach
- Create a plan that has a better chance to acceptance and success
