Overview

When the world shut down due to the pandemic, businesses found themselves trying to figure out if working remotely was doable...and somehow, it worked. According to Harvard Business Review, over half of hybrid employees feel maintaining relationships with their team has been possible, but the number dwindles to around 40% when considering employee relationships outside of an employee’s direct team. What’s important to introverts and extroverts when they work in the office? How do those need change in a #WFH setting? This 3.5-hour seminar will investigate and reveal how managers can meet introvert and extrovert team needs while switching between office and home-based settings.

Learn to measure accountability and communicate effectively with all members of your team. Do your introverts prefer to be off-camera? Would an impromptu after-hours virtual happy hour energize your extroverts? How can meetings and project workflows be reimagined to get the most from each personality type?

Learn specific techniques and strategies to employ as a manager that speak to both introverts and extroverts on your team, while meeting their needs and positioning all your employees for success—regardless if working from home, in the office or switching between both environments. This seminar will teach managers how to deal with different personalities and find solutions that work effectively for today’s hybrid work environment.
