Uniting a workgroup to function optimally while some employees report in person and others are virtual or remote isn't exactly new, but this hybrid format — the adoption of which was accelerated by the pandemic — has become a mainstay in today's workplace. Managers and executives, therefore, need to redesign their team leadership models and work processes for a hybrid future.

In this course, you will examine many different types of hybrid work arrangements. You will define what a hybrid team is and assess the current state of your organization: How well is it functioning? Where is there room for improvement in communication, process, and norms? After identifying a desired state for your organization, you will select the most beneficial hybrid model for your team, explore the implications of various hybrid arrangements, and prepare to share your recommendations for your workgroup.

By the completion of the course, you'll come away with emerging best practices from Cornell research to make your hybrid workgroup as effective as it can possibly be.
