Think about your day-to-day at work right now. Are you in the moment swatting at the most immediate issues or are you fixated on getting to better times ahead?
Many of us are wrestling with how we shift to new ways of working together. Dave McKeown thinks that to make this new mode work for everyone, we need to have a two track approach. Fix what’s broken in the short-term, but keep focused on where you want to go in the long-term.
This means that leaders have to be honest about not having all the answers. It means trying new ways and failing until you find what works—and being okay with that.
Hybrid and dispersed work require a new mindset. What worked before won’t work now. Dave has very practical tips for what to think about and how to make the most of uncertainty.
