Cog Wheels with Teamwork and Change WordsLike it or not, hybrid teams are here to stay! Yet building and managing hybrid teams – when some team members work remotely and others are in the office – can be a challenge. When people are spread across different work environments, productivity, communication, and cohesion can be harder to maintain.

Challenges That Hybrid Teams Face
By splitting up a team, the complexities of the work environment increase dramatically. Some of the common challenges that hybrid teams face include:

  • getting to know each other when they might never meet in person
  • maintaining communication and collaboration
  • building team cohesion
  • ensuring fairness and inclusion
  • avoiding having an “in-group” of office-based team members and an “out-group” of remote team members
  • fair and equal performance evaluations
  • adapting to change

Use StrengthsFinder® For Team Building For Hybrid Teams
Fortunately, StrengthsFinder®, the personality test can be an effective team building tool for hybrid teams.

Developed by the Gallup® organization and now known as CliftonStrengths®, StrengthsFinder® identifies a person’s top 5 strengths (out of 34 possible strengths). The online assessment takes just 35-45 minutes to complete, and the results can be life-changing – on a personal and professional level.

People are better able to understand themselves, and if the StrengthsFinder® results are shared across the team, they’re also better able to understand their colleagues.

StrengthsFinder® Can Unite Hybrid Teams
When people on a hybrid team understand each team member’s strengths, this can help foster a deeper appreciation of different working styles and talents. This mutual recognition can help bridge the physical distance between team members, leading to a more cohesive team environment.

StrengthsFinder® Can Maximize Team Roles And Responsibilities
Leaders of hybrid teams can use insights from the StrengthsFinder® results to assign roles and tasks that align with each team member’s strengths. This strategic alignment can help increase work productivity and is particularly valuable in a hybrid setup, where clarity of roles and expectations can sometimes become muddied.

StrengthsFinder® Can Improve Team Meetings And Check-Ins For Hybrid Teams
Understanding team strengths can help improve the structure and content of team meetings and check-ins, making them more engaging and productive. Leaders can design these interactions to ensure that everyone’s strengths are utilized and acknowledged, fostering a sense of inclusion and value.

StrengthsFinder® Can Support Individual Development On Hybrid Teams
StrengthsFinder® provides a framework for personalized development plans that cater to each team member’s unique strengths. This individualized approach to growth is particularly effective for hybrid teams, helping each person contribute their unique strengths to the team.

StrengthsFinder® Can Boost Team Morale And Engagement On Hybrid Teams
On a hybrid team, when engagement can vary widely between remote and in-office experiences, leveraging individual strengths can help maintain motivation and job satisfaction across the board.

StrengthsFinder® Training And Workshops For Hybrid Teams
We offer remote and in-person StrengthsFinder® team building trainings and workshops for hybrid teams, which we can customize to meet your exact needs.

In our StrengthsFinder® trainings and workshops, we typically cover:

  • strengths charting for the entire team (a compilation of each team member’s top 5 strengths)
  • overview of the 34 StrengthsFinder® strengths
  • examples of the combinations of a person’s top 5 strengths
  • contributions, needs, triggers, and overuse patterns of the 34 StrengthsFinder® strengths and how they can impact teams
  • case studies

If you’d like an in-person training or workshop for your hybrid team, we can provide that at your workplace or at a separate location (for example a team meeting that you might be hosting or a conference that you might be attending). We’re happy to accommodate your schedule, including providing trainings and workshops on nights and weekends.
