Learning, and learning quickly, is an important part of success in the virtual, remote and hybrid space. In order to help people learn, it’s important that we set them up for success, linking us to a psychological concept called priming.
Here’s what I wrote in Reconnecting Workspaces,
Priming is a psychological term which is used to describe the ability to set people up for success.
Given the importance of this in talent management and onboarding, consider how you can:
• Shape expectations early on; co-create ways of working
• Model behavior
• Ask questions to let people “percolate” on things
• Create an environment of trust
As Judith Glaser writes, “Priming causes us to think in a different way and changes our mind about how we will approach a task.” She continues, “Priming helps us set the stage to achieve great results with others.”

Practically, what do you want to do to prime others for a great experience in the virtual, remote and hybrid space?
