Making the most of blended working: hybrid teamworking [TG4/Team]


10:00 am - 11:30 am

Event Type


The ‘new normal’ has brought new problems for teams, with people using different resources and differently available. Whilst the hybrid model could give the best of both worlds, it frequently results in the worst, with miscommunication, mistakes, work not done and people feeling excluded.

We analyse what is most likely to go wrong, and use this to create best practice guidelines for responsibilities/skills, effective communication and goodwill within the team to ensure work practices which get the best outcome from this mode of working.

Session Programme:  

  • Intros: teams and issues
  • Talk: Main problem areas
  • Group: Contact/goodwill/manager
  • Chat: Best practice guidelines
  • Talk: Basic video meeting guidelines

After intros, we look at how the two groups are likely to be feeling about each other, and the main problems that will arise. This leads into a ‘best practice’ exercise where we look at three main problem areas (communication, goodwill and manager responsibilities/skills) and come up with practical guidelines. After this is debriefed, we take a quick look at using video meetings with mixed teams.
