Building high performing teams in a hybrid working world



Event context

Over the past 18+ months, team dynamics have changed more than ever with remote / hybrid working becoming the norm. What has this meant for team performance? With a future that looks set on a hybrid model at least for the medium term, we as L&D and People leaders need to re-evaluate and rethink how we build and support our teams for them to become or continue to be high performing. 

Drawing on work and research Jeff carried out on teams at Facebook and the dozens of high growth scaleups he’s worked with, Jeff will lead a collaborative session where we will explore and co-create future focused solutions to developing high performing teams within the hybrid working world.  

In this interactive virtual session, we will discuss and explore: 

  • Why traditional team building models are less relevant 
  • The 7 characteristics that teams should focus on to become, and stay, a high performing team 
  • How the leader shows up is crucial, we look at what to do when it starts to go bad
  • How to execute better team coaching, including:
    • When to use internal versus external team coaching
    • How to build internal competence including train the trainer, Friday de-briefs, self serve, diagnostic and playbook.
