In a new Harvard Business Review article, Dr. Heidi K. Gardner cites three approaches for energizing hybrid teams.
Business stressors like layoffs, economic headwinds, and geopolitical instability are depleting teams, causing one in four employees globally to feel burned out. These factors are compounded by the strains of hybrid working, which has made collaboration harder for teams that are increasingly siloed and fragmented. Yet in this era of cutbacks and constraint, not only do we expect our teams to do more with less, but we need them to innovate—and quickly—to drive growth. Today’s complicated times require even more from leaders because teams need different approaches depending on why their energy is flagging.
In a new Harvard Business Review article, Dr. Heidi K. Gardner shares three different paths that successful, energizing leaders must take to harness positive energy for strong hybrid collaboration and its resulting performance outcomes: channeling, generating, and multiplying.
