What is the board's role in creating connected, high trust, high performance teams in the workplace of our future?

Expectations around where and how work happens have fundamentally shifted. The workplace is no longer where work happens - it’s where teams come to connect and collaborate. To revitalise.

Creating connected, high trust, high performance teams in the workplace of our future requires deliberate and considered leadership action. Starting with the Board. How can organisations do this?

Boards and Leaders can look to explore innovative ways that provide a balanced and supported return to the office. Central to this are the team agreements that take an organisation’s culture and bring this respectfully into a new way of working in the post-COVID environment.

Creating a Social Contract uncovers what really matters to a team and describes a shared sense of identity. To navigate the future organisation, collaborative co-design of the organisational culture requires deliberate and considered change leadership actions. The Social Contract helps leaders and teams to revitalise and reimagine the workplace. Join Jo's presentation to find out more.
