A New Age of Hybrid Leadership

Speaker: Renee Thomas and Alexis Barone, Wrike Team

There are many myths surrounding the idea of remote work: it will cause laziness, procrastination, ineffective communication, lack of motivation, and employee burnout. As pervasive as these myths were, 2020 swiftly kicked them all out the door. Companies can no longer deny the fact that employees can in fact be productive, motivated, and proactive, all while working remotely. On the other side of the coin, some teams still crave the social, in-person dynamic of work. Enter the new model of work, the hybrid schedule. It's time for project managers to gain a new understanding of what good leadership looks like in the future of work. We were all baptized by fire this past year, so now it's time to look back, learn the big lessons, and gain the insights needed to pivot forward. Join us for our panel with Renee Thomas and Alexis Barone of the Wrike Team, in this discussion about the future of work--hybrid, remote, and everything in between.
