Why traditional leadership skills aren't cutting it in a hybrid world, and what TD pros can do about it
Leading an effective hybrid remote team takes special skills, which many leaders simply don’t have. This interactive workshop is designed for learning and development professionals who want to play an active role in bolstering their leaders’ effectiveness in this new world of work through training, coaching and sharing lessons learned.

As a facilitator, trainer, coach and presenter, Nancy helps organizations answer such questions as:
- How can we create a level playing field across our virtual and hybrid teams?
- How can distributed teams cultivate trust and social relationships when the windows of opportunity for real-time conversations are almost non-existent?
- In what areas are agreed-upon operating norms most essential for our team?
- What skills, behaviors and attributes are essential if we want our virtual team members and leaders to collaborate more effectively?
- How can our team members make the best use of asynchronous (any time) and synchronous (same-time) communications methods to achieve shared goals more easily and consistently?
- How can we cross-pollinate knowledge and share lessons learned more reliably?
- What can we do to take advantage of cross-cultural and timezone differences to produce better outcomes?
