#1 – What does hybrid really mean? Hybrid can mean a lot of different things – from meaning working in person 2 or 3 days a week, to working 2-3 days a month at the office. What does hybrid mean for you?
#2 – Staying Connected when we aren’t all together – a second area which is a challenge is how the team is going to stay connected when we aren’t all together. What changes are needed to processes and practices?
#3 – Ensuring that communication flow is happening for everyone. Communication, and lack of communication, is a challenge for hybrid teams. What are you doing to ensure that everyone is receiving the same messages, at the same time? If this does not happen, it can lead to sentiments of “being left out”, not being in the loop, favoritism, and issues can get dropped.
#4 – The effectiveness of hybrid meetings – Meetings continue to be a pain point for organizations. What are you doing to ensure that meetings are most effective for those in the room, and those on the screen?
#5 – Challenges with feedback. Over the last few years, feedback has been based more on output, given that people can’t be seen in the remote space. Now that some people are in the office, and some are not, how are you measuring results? What kind of feedback are people getting? What’s working and what’s not?
#6 – Ensuring that the team can get together for some periods of time. Pre-pandemic remote professionals understood how important it was to prioritize time for the team to come together for periods of time. What are you doing to ensure that there is time for the team to come together, whether it’s quarterly, or more frequently? The value of having everyone being on the same page is huge!
