Leading and managing hybrid teams is not new. Some teams have worked remotely for many years. There are companies that have international offices; regional offices and international leadership teams. However, The COVID-19 pandemic created an immediate and essential move to remote working. There are some individuals who will choose to work remotely for at least part of the working week; and many organisations are encouraging fewer employees to come into the office. This will result in hybrid teams: with some team members in the office and others working remotely. Leading such teams requires new skills and adds challenges.
