This is a course for open-minded managers searching for non-obvious, evidence-based solutions on how to build engaged and effective team no matter where people are (office or home). You will find over 30 practical solutions to 15 real life problems with communication, results, relationships, resilience and happiness in hybrid teams. You will learn best practices from global companies such as Microsoft, GitLab, and Automattic. You will understand the importance of certain managerial behaviours thanks to findings from the scientists from Gallup's Institute, Stanford University, and Yale University.
Since part of your team works remotely (from home) and part in the office:
- do you feel that 80% of your working time is spent on calls and there is little time left to do the "real work"?
- do people work longer hours so their productivity is high, but their creativity is lower than before?
- do team members miss the informal chats over coffee and do you struggle how to make the online meetings more fun?
- is the level of stress higher and do you wonder how to avoid the burnout?
- are your employees less happy?
If you SAY YES to one or more of the above questions, this course is for you!
Nowadays, the majority of knowledge workers can work anywhere, not necessarily in the office. When part of the team works remotely and part of the team works in the office we talk about hybrid teams. Hybrid is the future of work and requires a new set of skills for managers to lead the hybrid teams.
Since people work more intellectually than physically, understanding what happens in our brain to make them the most productive, creative and engaged became very important. Studies show that one of the best solutions for that is to make our brain happy.
5 main modules of happy hybrid teams include:
Communication - which communications tools to use? how to avoid communication issues? how to lead great online meetings?
Results - how to make your team productive? how to keep innovation level high? how to support team member's visibility?
Relationships - how to build trust? why psychological security matters for hybrid teams? how to keep your team integrated on a distance?
Psychological Resilience - how to support work-life integration? why the body matters when you do intellectual work? what to do to lower the stress level?
Happiness - why does it matter to learn to appreciate here and now? how to increase positive emotions? what to do to show the purpose of work to make people proud of what they do?
Each chapter contains 3 lessons where we share real life cases, latest research findings and a few practical solutions that you can implement in your team minute after you are done with the course at no cost.
