Are you leading a team preparing for hybrid work?
We are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, where people can start to gather in-person. But now that the world has experienced over a year of virtual work, we’re not going back to the way things were. Instead, we’re moving forward to a new world, a new hybrid between in-person and virtual.
This new world has both danger and opportunity for work teams. The danger is that we become fragmented, out-of-sync, and even distrustful of each other. We’ll succumb to the danger if we stick to the old ways of doing things. The opportunity is to leverage this new way of hybrid working to become more inclusive, connected, adaptive, resilient, innovative, and productive. We’ll take advantage of this opportunity if we learn how to evolve how we collaborate and how we lead.
Stanford University’s Glenn Fajardo will lead your team through two exercises – one to capture your discoveries on improved ways of working enabled by remote work, and a second exercise that builds on that to establish a new charter for working together.
Premised on academic research, this experience is an excellent way for leaders to prepare for the next era of work.
Meets requirements for most corporate learning and development budgets.
See below for details.
Glenn Fajardo is the co-author of the January 2021 “Rituals for Virtual Meetings: Creative Ways to Engage People and Strengthen Relationships” and a fellow at the Stanford University School of Design.
Glenn has spent the past five years teaching executive education classes at Stanford that emphasized how people can be creative together when they are far apart, including “Design Across Borders”, “Design Insider / Outsider” and “Long Distance Design”.
Glenn has been a student of virtual collaboration since 2008, working with teams across six continents engaged in social impact work. He was formerly the Director of the Global Network Co-Design Practice of TechSoup, and is trained in nuclear engineering and public policy.
This experience is eligible under most corporate Learning & Development budgets.

“Setting-Up Your Team for Hybrid Work” teaches skills to become an effective leader and team member in ‘hybrid’ work modes. Attendees learn, discuss, and develop their own ability to create equitable, inclusive, and psychologically safe environments in which people contribute to their fullest from any location.
