The Future of Work

With companies operating in a variety of modalities amidst volatility and uncertainty, HR and talent management professionals are faced with having to re-think how they support key talent.

Whether you are faced with moving rapidly into a new leadership role in response to company acquisition, or need to reallocate existing leadership talent to capitalize on the shifting economic landscape, the future of work presents new challenges to once familiar situations. Working with global organizations for over twenty years, we have optimized our solutions for flexibility and scalability.

Proven to accelerate time to productivity by up to 50%, reduce the likelihood of derailment, improve decision-making and credibility, and assess and align teams faster, our approaches ensure more rapid integration of new and internal hires into the organization, increase their retention and engagement, and mitigate transition risk to the enterprise.

Managing Hybrid Teams

Managing teams whose members are working remotely presents very different challenges than more traditional co-located team situations. Communication and coordination inevitably are more difficult, and leaders often struggle to maintain connection with and among their teams. The lack of clear structure, regular rhythms of activity, and less interaction can contribute to lack of focus and undermine engagement. Virtual team leaders must therefore provide substantially more structure, build a stronger foundation for communication and devote extra effort to maintaining informal connection among their teams. We have the expertise to help you manage virtual teams effectively.
