Leading Hybrid Teams

We offer: Leading practices that enable a hybrid workplace

What is it ?

‘Hybrid Working’ is a series of facilitated workshops focused on shaping workplaces to become high-performing locations both at home and at the on-site office. Selected Semco Style’s practices form the engine of the program, with each workshop providing clear guidelines for action and implementation. The practices are built on Semco’s 40 years of experience with Hybrid Working. These will come to life in interactive sessions through case studies, facilitated discussions, games and simulations.

Who is it for?

Leaders, policymakers and enthusiasts who are keen on enhancing communication, individual and team alignment or co-creating social boundaries at the workplace can enroll.

About Hybrid Working

The Hybrid Working way combines two elements that complement each other to achieve a predetermined goal. In today’s work environment, only few have been able to truly understand the hybrid model, let alone implement it successfully. As a result, it has been easy for managers to fall into old command-and-control behaviors while treading unfamiliar ground.

It is essential to understand that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ in the hybrid model. Continuous experimentation, effective communication and adjusting as needed are how we move forward.

Sounds ideal? But how can organizations bring about this new balance? How can teams build a culture of trust and commitment that enables consistency? And finally, how do organizations enable the evolution of traditional roles?

The answers to these salient questions are in the Semco Style practices. Numerous practices, born from years of experimentation, form a framework for understanding and applying the hybrid model. Hybrid working aims at empowering organizations with the tools required to create a workplace that embraces an agile future – either from home or the office.

The Hybrid Working workshops teach policymakers, leaders, and teams about the underlying mechanisms at play while we work in a hybrid environment.

The series comprises 6×3 hours of online workshops. You can decide whether to follow a selection of workshops or sign up for the complete program.

Case studies, lively discussions, and role-play are facilitated around current trends for you to experiment with.

Workshop series 1

Finding Your Role as a Leader 

The bridge to a motivated workplace can only be crossed when there is a culture of commitment. As a leader, how would you go about facilitating such a culture?

In these two workshops, we focus on the changing role of leaders, who empower, rather than dominate, the workforce. For leaders to truly feel comfortable in their new role, they need clarity about responsibilities, goals and, above all, the strengths of their team. In the first workshop we will discuss directly applicable practices, which you can experiment within your organization between the two workshops.

Active role play and games during the workshops will help you as a leader understand how to take control, without being controlling. You will experiment with having honest conversations and motivating others to feel in control of their own roles and responsibilities.


In this program, you will:

By the end of the workshops, you will be able to empower teams by understanding how to shape their role and define their responsibilities.

Performing in a Hybrid team

These two workshops will focus on the performance within a hybrid team. What instruments and support tools are there to track performance? What behaviors are needed to maintain an effective level of alignment? And, when do hybrid teams perform successfully?

You will learn how to develop new habits that stimulate performance in a hybrid or remote setting. Through interactive sessions, participants will experience the challenges and opportunities that hybrid working provides. They will equip themselves with practices to experiment with directly.

To experiment with creating alignment between leaders, teams and departments, it is essential to balance the interests of everyone involved. In the first workshop we will discuss directly applicable practices, which you can experiment with in your organization between the two workshops. At the end of the second workshop, you have a plan of approach.

    In order to understand the full length of working in a hybrid format, HR policymakers, leaders and teams need to understand their role in accordance with those of their peers.

    Article: Hybrid Working Is Not About Where You Work
