Leading Hybrid Teams




As a government leader, one of the challenges you can expect to navigate is the increasing pace of change. This can be seen most recently as government agencies continue shifts to remote and hybrid work. More than ever before, many teams are spread out geographically - people may either be in the office, working remotely from home, or a combination of both. As your agency adapts to this new era of work, your leadership approach may need to evolve as well, for today’s environment, and for whatever the future may bring.

What does this approach look like when your team doesn’t share a physical space? Creating psychological safety, cohesion, trust, and belonging when everyone is together in one room is challenging enough; it can be even more complex in a remote or hybrid environment.

During this course, you will explore how to best support and lead teams in dispersed work environments. While management methods are generally the same, applying them in a different way, with greater creativity and intentionality, can make all the difference. Your role as a “leader,” not just a “manager,” is vital to the success of your organization amidst the changing dynamics of remote and hybrid work.

You will walk away with the skills to diagnose systems, practices, and mindsets that hinder or foster inclusive teams – regardless of where your team is working.
