Hybrid Work Revolution: What Teams are Facing and Leaders are Missing

By: Tan Weixi

  • About the Author
  • In the wake of the global shift toward hybrid work arrangements, businesses and organisations are facing unprecedented challenges.

    Hybrid Work Revolution offers a comprehensive exploration of the changing landscape of work in the 21st century, focusing on the experiences of teams and the critical insights leaders may be overlooking.

    The book is organised into three easily-digestible big bites. The first delves into the challenges of communicating with team members who are spread out across multiple locations, or worse still, in different time zones and countries. This section offers a perspective on how we can reimagine the workplace, leverage technology effectively, and enhance collaboration among our team members.

    The second investigates the paradox for leaders to invest time to build close relationships, while giving team members enough personal space. The chapters here deliberate how leaders can establish trust, build psychological safety, and explore the factors that accelerates relationships in a hybrid work environment.

    The last section takes a fresh look at the tracking of performance in a hybrid workplace, and explores some paradigms that will encourage a learning culture and drive employee engagement.
