This week’s Wednesday Wisdom is to remember that it’s important to make relationship time a priority for hybrid and remote teams. If teams are always just focused on “getting things done” without the focus on getting to know each other and build trust and connection, it’s likely that the team will eventually start to unravel.
Team identity is an important part of team performance, and this is usually created in the process of meeting and spending time together.
With a hybrid team, you are likely going to have to make extra effort to keep those who are working in person, and those who are working remotely, together.
This might include activities around:
Virtual co-working time (which everyone can participate in, regardless of location)
Peer partners which could involve job shadowing or other activities
Dedicated team building events
What are the things you want to do to boost relationships across the teams?
