Bridging the Great Return – A Team Experience

Deciding if, when, and how to bring your people back to the workplace is a complex and sensitive matter. For leaders looking for a prudent way to reunite their staff, here’s an example of how one organization gathered members in person to reconnect and strengthen relationships—and recapture the advantages of team-based collaboration, problem solving and decision making.

In Bridging the Great Return – A Team Experience, we welcome consultant Dave Wheelock of Into the Blue Consulting and Lauren Smith of Veteran Benefits Guide for an engaging discussion on the rewarding approach that brought a Las Vegas-based organization together for the first time in many months. Key discussions include:

  • Concerns and questions that organizations and workers face as return-to-work models are considered.
  • What true collaboration and consensus can look like through consultative advice and helpful tips.
  • Best practices and solutions when working with teams to build trust and greater cohesiveness.

If you’re an internal or external consultant providing organizations with tools to bridge a new phase of workplace evolution, you may find this content both timely and useful.
