Adapting to Hybrid Working
Course Description:

This new workshop will enable managers and employees to consider the full range of opportunities and risks related to hybrid working.

We will draw on research on the psychology of remote working and best practice in dispersed team leadership to encourage discussions about the best way to adapt to hybrid working.

After a period of remote working, we enter a new era of embracing a hybrid working pattern. This conveys the advantages of work flexibility and choice but still carries risks for teams and individuals. With hybrid working, we might assume that office working returns as the norm and that working from home is the exception which must fit around this. However, if we do so, we could fail to maximise the opportunities and manage the risks for our distributed teams.

We support a more conscious approach to hybrid working for managers and employees that considers what we have learned from research on human communication, the leadership of remote teams, and individual personality. This helps us navigate what works best for different situations and people.

This session will cover:

  1. Adopting a remote working mindset for dispersed and hybrid teams
  2. The challenge of leading dispersed teams
  3. The role of personality in remote working and what it means for hybrid teams


By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Gain new insights into the challenges associated with hybrid working
  • Develop knowledge of how and where the challenges associated with hybrid working can be tackled
  • Build an action plan for supporting other team members in a hybrid working environment
