Remote Work Trends: A New Location to Team Anywhere

Currently, you can drive to the local coffee shop whenever you want and kind of get your work done. But the challenges you’ll face include noise, lack of equipment like printers and projectors, and no private meeting rooms. What if the coffee shop was set up to provide the ideal workspace that you could rent by the hour? The concept is called Val.

On today’s podcast, you’ll meet Mo Hamzian, CEO at VEL, a work cafe that merges the best of Starbucks and WeWork but with the price and flexibility that you need to Team Anywhere.

The Key to A Successful Hybrid Organization is Simply Being More Human

When it comes to business in 2021, we need to resonate on a human level. How many of us actually ask ourselves how well we are interacting and impacting other human beings? In today’s hybrid and virtual environment, creating human connections is something that must be strategically planned and measured.

In today’s episode, we interview Zach Giglio, Founder and CEO of GCM, where he creates human connections through communicating and marketing. Zach has found that companies that are leading in this new virtual and hybrid environment are clear about their identity as a company, and are deeply purpose-driven.

How The Post-Pandemic Workplace Creates Meaningful Gatherings in New Space Designs

The post-pandemic workplace is not going to be like it was when you worked in the office before 2020. As companies grapple with their hybrid work plans, leaders are taking this moment to refresh and reset. Leaders need to think consciously about creating a post-pandemic workplace that creates meaningful gatherings in new space designs.  

In today’s episode, we interview Dr. Tracy Brower, a PhD sociologist, author of The Secrets to Happiness at Work, contributor for Forbes.com and a principal with Steelcase Applied Research + Consulting group. Tracy explains that instead of simply “getting our employees back to the office”, we need to talk about how we are going to make our return to the office more compelling.  

Build a Hybrid Work Model

To Build a Hybrid Work Model, Propose Scenarios and Listen to Everybody

In today’s special episode we interview Rachel Casanova for our second round discussion on how to build a hybrid work model. Who is accountable for designing the hybrid work plan? If we leave it exclusively up to leadership, we may disenfranchise the employees and frankly, they’ll leave. If we leave it up to the employees, will they have the best interests of the company in mind?

Rachel recommends that this be a collaborative quest where leaders partner with their employees to come up with several possible hybrid scenarios. Companies that focus on the solutions rather than the problems will collaboratively create viable options to Team Anywhere in ways that work best for everyone.

A Successful Hybrid Team has more conversations than you think Team Anywhere Leadership Podcast Episode 54

A Successful Hybrid Team Has More Conversations than You Think

In today’s episode we interview Dave McKeown, author of The Self-Evolved Leader. In this week’s episode, Dave talks about how successful hybrid teams need to have more conversations than they might think as we figure out the hybrid work environment. Additionally, Dave discusses how the pandemic shifted what leadership styles are working. The old “here’s my vision, follow me” approach no longer works as leaders are called upon to embrace the unknown and create a unified vision with their team.

Successful hybrid teams will have to view the unknown future as a growth opportunity for themselves and their team members. These teams will recognize that embracing uncertainty is the best environment for everyone to develop. When these team members become Self-Evolved leaders, they will take the opportunity to reach out, ask questions, and challenge their team members as they all grow together and navigate teaming from anywhere.

Crisis Leadership Strategies episode 49 Team Anywhere Leadership Podcast

7 Crisis Leadership Strategies from a Leader Who’s Experienced 3 Major Crises

The tempo in our return to office plans should be much slower than it was when the pandemic started and everyone went home to work. When the pandemic started, the pace of getting employees to work from home was like running. It was a crisis. Now, a year and a half later, the crisis is still showing uncertainty. As employees begin to move back to the office, great leaders know that the way back isn’t to run. Leaders need to set a tempo that’s more like walking.

In this episode, Rob LoCascio, CEO of Live Person, shares with us that the greatest leaders today must be the type that set a walking pace, provide certainty and clarity, and remain authentic – even in the most challenging times.

This is the time for leaders to acknowledge that no one knows what the future holds. The best way forward is for leaders to share the truth about what they do know, rather than pretending they have everything figured out. Instead, leaders must listen to their employees to find out what their employees need in order to Team Anywhere.

Rachel Casanova and Ginny Bianco Mathis have been investigating this post-COVID work environment and there seems to be two conflicting conversations occurring between leaders and employees.

The options in the future (remote work, in office work and hybrid work) seem to serve different needs for different audiences.
