Description:

As workplaces around the world move towards normalizing operations, many public employees find themselves part of a hybrid team - where on any given day some employees are working in the office and some are working remotely. Rotation schedules are being created and choices are being made about how to conduct business under a new model.

Leading hybrid teams presents a new way of operating and requires careful planning and new skills. To help ensure the success of hybrid teams, WCIA has developed a series of workshops to include:

The Fundamentals of Managing a Hybrid Workforce
Trainer: Connie Poulsen, President Owner, Managing & Consulting

  • This session covers the key components of success for hybrid leaders: Leadership Skills, Managing for Outcomes, and Building a Hybrid Culture
  • Participants will learn new skills necessary to lead hybrid teams such as how to manage for results and measuring outcomes. Additionally, students will discover how to rebuild the traditional work culture to facilitate¬† employee engagement, communications, and collaboration. This session addresses complex needs and provides a forum for discussion about best practices.
