The New Hybrid World (Presentation 6:15 PM – 8:00 PM Pacific).

The challenges of the past year pushed people to do what they once thought was impossible. A hybrid work model has fast emerged.

The new challenge is for CEOs and their executive teams to purposefully manage remote work to maximize employee engagement, well-being, and productivity.

In this presentation, Jon will be discussing three key areas of this transformation:

1. The New Hybrid World: From Policy to Processes:
In just two months, through mid-May 2021, the percentage of U.S. employees working from home more than doubled, from 31% to 65%, accounting for more than 100 million American workers.
Dramatic infrastructure changes have enabled us to work from anywhere. Moreover, we have now worked from home during a pandemic — our homes form a key element of the new workplace, functioning as operations centers, the base for many virtual meetings, as well as classrooms.

2. Hybrid Team Leadership: Mindsets for Success:
• What protocols can you put in place to synchronize employees in the office with those working remotely?
• How do you maintain flexibility where plans may change at any moment?
• And how do you help employees adapt to stresses of the “blended work life” including extended work hours?

3. Workforce Transformation: Reskilling/ Upskilling for Professionals:
A challenge for today’s professionals is to keep an eye on trends happening in their remote work environment and to prepare themselves to reskill.
Critical leadership skills include:
• Setting clear goals and communicating expectations;
• Building collaborative teamwork; and
• Creating greater visibility for virtual team members..

Jon will share some solutions, and how a generic “best practices” approach is NOT appropriate. Rather, leaders need to be asking the right questions — and answering them with individuals’ wellbeing as well as the organization’s needs in mind.
