Remote/Hybrid Workplace Success
The transition to a hybrid workplace has been a success for many organizations. A hybrid workplace is a mix of remote and on-site work. This model has allowed organizations to be more flexible and adapt to the changing needs of their employees.

Of course, Hybrid is not easy and comes with many challenges. Some of the biggest challenges in remote work have to do with Hybrid work. In actuality, the Hybrid model is the hardest for organizations to get right! You need to start with communication, whether in one-on-one conversations, meetings of various sizes, corporate newsletters, emails, memos, notes, phone calls, or other formats. In a remote model, you often lose body language, facial expressions, and intonation in most communication channels. Communication is 7 percent verbal, 38 percent vocal, and 55 percent visual. That means that 93 percent of communication is nonverbal.

In this keynote, Chris Dyer will share his years of experience and lessons from his best-selling Book: Remote Work to help any organization rapidly improve every part of its hybrid culture.

Learning Objectives:

• Creating balance in meetings through virtual body language, respect for time zone differences, and better curation.
• Heightened focus on communication. Both through better listening, and improved writing skills.
• Learn how to create a positive water cooler culture for recognition, connection, and even some fun!

What you'll take away:

1. Defining Burnout: Understand the World Health Organization’s recognition of burnout as an occupational syndrome, placing the onus on organizations and their leaders.
2. Nurturing Resilience: Explore the pivotal role of adaptive leadership in turbulent times, leveraging strategies that not only mitigate workplace stress but also foster resilience and innovation among teams.
3. A New Leadership Paradigm: Discover how servant leadership, compassionate interactions, and the cultivation of trust and autonomy can usher in a resilient, burnout-resistant organizational culture.
