What are people saying about BizLibrary webinars?
Many people think of remote teams as a binary choice: either people work in the office, or they work remotely. But 70% of teams are a hybrid. Some people work in the office, some work from home or other locations. This presents unique challenges for managers who have to straddle the line between those two management styles. Join Wayne Turmel, co-author of The Long-Distance Leader for a candid look at perhaps the most challenging situation a leader can find themselves in—melding their co-located and remote workers into a cohesive team.
In our time together you’ll learn:
- Why the dynamics of hybrid teams create challenges for managers and team members
- Avoiding the perception of favoritism and the “mom likes you best” dilemma
- Tips and best practices for creating a truly united team no matter where they work
