Can the hybrid workplace see the same success of the high performing team as in the “traditional office” context? Announcing our next Leadership Forum on Friday, 28th April, Breakfast (7.15am for 7.30am to 8.55am), at Crown, Melbourne.
COVID has thrown chaos into many workplaces. For many, the hybrid workplace has become a major challenge to the alignment, effectiveness, and productivity of teams. But, is it always the enemy of ‘High Performing Teams’?
Now, “hybrid” is more than just driving a vehicle that can run on multiple sources of power. The hybrid workplace is a workplace that offers anything from working in the corporate office to the comfort of an employee’s home.
It seems that the employee has the upper hand. So, is your business flexible enough to handle the radical changes the hybrid environment brings?
Well, the ‘hybrid workplace’ is here to stay, whether you like it not. Should your organisation be slow to embrace these changes, people will move on. And you and I know what an expensive cost to your bottom line this can be!
That is why Bridgeworks, in partnership with the Network of Consulting Professionals, is bringing together four CEOs from four businesses that have turned the hybrid workplace into opportunity rather than threat.
This important breakfast event for leaders and people of influence will take place at Crown in Melbourne on Friday 28th April. As in all our events, the audience will be fully engaged and interacting with this panel of CEOs. With this post, we give you an early opportunity to secure a table for your team or key clients.
A Panel Of Leaders Who Have Made “The hybrid Workplace” An Opportunity:
Dr Glenn Williams – CEO, LCP Global
Before founding LCP Global in 2010, Glenn held senior roles with a global US-based NGO with offices in 15 countries. He served as Group VP, Sr. Vice President, and COO for Global Operations. As such he was overseeing 700 staff and a budget of US$110 million.
In 2013, he completed a doctorate through George Fox University in the U.S.. There, he focused on the relationship between leadership character and performance; and he gave insight into how organizational culture, leadership identity, and wellbeing affect decision making and performance.
Jenny George – CEO Converge International
Jenny is the CEO at Converge International. This leading Australian health and well-being solutions provider encompasses EAP (employee assistance programs), conflict resolution, training, outplacement services, psychometric testing, rapid response/critical incident debriefing and other consulting services.
The hybrid workplace has also created issues in the mental health area. So we have asked Jenny to assist us in understanding the impact of these changes on mental health; and how we need to address this from a leadership point of view.
Guy Mycroft – Principal Mycroft Management & Consulting
A career in a tough industry forged Guy Mycroft into the business leader he is today; and it gave him invaluable experience in helping other leaders operate in tough, competitive environments where leadership, strategy and excellence in execution were critical to ensuring survival and driving profitability.
Guy’s expertise lies in helping leaders feel empowered to navigate their businesses, whether large or small, through the toughest times by instilling a sense of calm and resolve in the day-to-day. This includes navigating the emerging hybrid workplaces – seeing and working with arising opportunities.
With experience in leading organisations through major change and placing an emphasis on accountability at all levels, Guy has helped senior management for more than 100 organisations establish carefully considered strategic plans alongside analysis and decision-making capability. Guy also chairs a group of CEOs as part of the global TEC (The Executive Connection) association mentoring CEOs of SME.
CWM Homewares is a major distributor of homeware products to all segments of retail trade throughout Australia and New Zealand. Tina has held several senior roles at the growing business and recently has taken over in the capacity of MD.
Building engaged and productive cultures has always been Tina’s priority. She is a great believer in ‘if you get the culture right, the business is in the best hands’. Having built those cultural foundations made navigating her business through COVID and the ‘hybrid’ environment much easier.
The panel’s experience in dealing with many businesses now in ‘hybrid’ mode will provide significant insights into navigating the road forward.
We want to hear your feedback about the emerging hybrid workplace. This highly interactive forum needs your views, questions, frustrations and insights.
As bookings will go quickly, we recommend that you secure your place by return email to Wayne.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 28th of April.
