in the change to hybrid working.

Gathter insights into the pros and cons of hybrid working

Since Corona, the question of how organizations can and should work together has been a major topic. Hybrid working, in which employees largely determine where and when they do their work, is the new norm. How does your organization deal with this?

In this master class in six modules and additional information, you will learn about the background of work and how we got to our current situation. We’ll take you through the lessons learned during the lockdowns, explore the new meaning of the office and consider the implications for employees and managers.

Armed with new insights, you can play a pivotal role in any change process around new ways of working.

The Basics

This is hybrid working.

Everyone is talking about it, and everyone uses a different definition: hybrid working. There are various interests and various perspectives. For individuals and for the organisation. What’s yours?  There are challenges for the three types of organisation: classic, hybrid and nomad). What is your story?

After this module you will have an insight into the pros and cons of hybrid working on an individual, team and organisational level, and you’ll have a good picture as to where you stand in the development towards an organisation in which people can and want to assume responsibility. You will have a story towards your organisation as to why and how you are going to take steps towards a new, hybrid way of working.

Six basic activities that determine our work.

Focus work, processing, informal discussion, collaboration, formal discussion and presentation. Logically, what do you do where and when? And how does that differ from the roles in your organisation? What are you going to do to facilitate the serendipitous meeting? Which new technologies are going to help you for the things you normally did physically? How does it work if some people are at the office and others are not? Rules or is it free for all?

After this module you will have the knowledge and skills to apply activity-based and time- and place-independent working in your organisation. This will allow you to help your people with the physical and virtual facilities that apply to their role, and to make agreements as to how you can deal with this as effectively and efficiently as possible within your organisation.

The changing role and function of the office.

What should you do with your office? Insight into the various functions of the office (and the human need to meet others). The six activities from the previous module: where can you best do what? And what does the virtual office have to offer?

After this module, you and your organisation can determine whether and/or how you are going to use your office. You are aware of the latest research into the role and significance of physical meetings for organisations and you have a method for balancing the various relevant issues. This includes matters such as brand experience, innovative strength, the wish to retain or discard certain cultural aspects, and the relationship with your customers.

The Change

Hybrid work and the impact on culture and behavior.

Out of sight, out of mind? On engagement, accountability, agility and resilience as the keys to working successfully in a hybrid organization. How do you increase engagement? What can you do to make people and therefore the organization more resilient? How do you maintain your culture when working hybrid? And most importantly, how do you learn new behaviors and habits that fit hybrid working.

After this module you will know what is involved in enhancing the agility and resilience of your organization, and the role of involvement and autonomy in that process. You are aware of the latest insights in cultural change and you have a manageable method to start working in it in your organization.

On connective leadership.

Is there really a difference between leadership in a physical and hybrid world? It is crucial that you clarify the aim of the work so that people can themselves determine which are the right things to do. Steering on outcome instead of output. The leadership style of choice for hybrid organisations: assigning significance, support and facilitation. Connective leadership.

After this module you will have a series of practical insights that will help you to further develop leadership within your organisation. You’ll have all you need to get started on the model of the ‘Connected Leader’. You understand the systemic and behavioural aspects and how they are aligned to new ways of working.

Change is something you do together.

Introducing hybrid working is a major change that not everyone is happy about. How do you ensure that the interests of the organization and the individual remain in balance? How do you prevent some of the people from starting to resist? And how do you get people back to the office, while they are insecure and would rather stay at home?

After this module you will have an effective approach to developing and implementing a new way of working. Based on the principles of co creation and dialogue, appropriate to an organization where employees are used to take responsibility and change becomes normal.
