In the face of these profound shifts, middle managers will assume a critical role

Regrettably, the term “middle” suggests that the individual in this position is merely passing through on their way to higher roles, ideally reaching the top.
However, McKinsey argue that middle management should not merely be seen as a transitional phase but can actually be a final destination in itself.

How to Navigate a Culture Change

Over the past few years, there has been a remarkable transformation in the definitions of work culture, which essentially refers to “how things are done here.” Numerous elements like processes, technology, workflows, and training have been undergoing significant modifications as leaders strive to adapt to global pressures and fulfill the evolving expectations of employees.

Supporting Middle Managers in The Hybrid Workplace

One of the biggest challenges faced by leaders is how to provide the best possible support to their employees, especially mid-level managers who directly support their teams. According to the UK Economist Impact Report – nearly all survey respondents (98%) want to or already have rethought their office space or deployed hybrid working technologies. In addition, 71.5% were looking to increase their spending on digital workspaces.

Hybrid working – best practice to adapting!

Employees are clear on one thing — they want the flexibility to choose between remote, hybrid, or office-based working arrangements. In the UK research suggests that the benefits relate to flexible scheduling, personal cost savings, the absence of commuting and improved home care opportunities, for pets, children and/or relatives

Building Resilient Organisations

Recovering from disruption is difficult, but some organisations have managed to overcome and become even more resilient, thanks to a systems mindset emphasising agility, psychological safety, adaptable leadership, and cohesive culture.

How the Future of Work and the Role of Leaders is Shifting

As we return to the office full time, continue to work remotely, or adopt a hybrid of both approaches, one fact remains – COVID-19 and the restrictions it brought significantly transformed the way we work, where we work, and how we feel about work.

Top People and Change Trends for 2022

Coping with big challenges such making hybrid teams work and deciding when, or whether, to get people back in the office, have meant that leaders themselves have had to shift to become more agile themselves.

Here’s a few ideas about how to keep ahead of the change curve that is coming at you in 2022.
