Reconnecting and Supporting Groups in the Return to the Office: 4 Things

Reconnecting and Supporting Groups in the Return to the Office

By Jennifer Britton, Fall 2021


This fall marks the return to the office in many places around the world. Whether individuals are moving back into the office, or moving to a hybrid workspace, or remaining distributed, it's an opportunity to reconnecting individuals, teams and groups. 

Over the last year I've spent a lot of time talking with teams, HR groups, coaches about the 7 Remote Enablers (TM), seven areas which help us soar in the remote space. When moving to this next phase of work, whatever it will look like, it's important that we provide a space for people to reconnect. 

This blog post focuses on four things you can do as a coach to reconnect and support groups in the return to the office. 

#1 - Provide space for connection. Leaving time and space for people to connect is at the foundation of a smooth return to the office. What formal and informal opportunities can be built in, to reconnect people?

#2 - Provide ample time for (re-) introductions - in many workplaces, and workspaces today people may not have seen each other for almost two years in person. There are likely to be several people who have never been physically in the building or having met their team mates, especially if they were hired after the pandemic started. As coaches in what ways can you provide a space for introductions.

#3 - Explore vision - Vision has been an important anchor for so many throughout the last few years. As I shared recently at the ICF Converge conference, revisiting and rearticulating vision is a key part of success in the remote and hybrid space. What are you doing to explore vision with the groups and teams you are working with?

Consider how you might:

  • Create Vision Boards on an individual basis
  • Create Roadmaps on an individual, group or team basis
  • Create Team Quilts
  • Bring in a graphic facilitator (like myself) to do a Draw Your Future process to map it out!


#4 - Revisit strengths - The ability to leverage strengths is a key part of success and in today's variable workspace this is no different. What opportunities can you create to introduce StrengthsFinder/Clifton Strengths or VIA Strengths to clients. Stimulating these conversations are important for individual contributors in a group setting, or for entire teams can be a valuable place to begin.

What is going to stimulate the conversations in the workspaces you support?

For more ideas pick up a copy of Reconnecting Workspaces, or join us for the next Reconnecting Workspaces Coach Certification (24 CCEs) to build out your toolkit.

We cover these topics more in-depth in the Team Coaching Essentials program as well. Next group starts November 9th.

Best wishes,

Jennifer

Ready to Lead the Way in the Hybird World as A Reconnecting Workspaces Coach (24 CCEs)?

Learn more and join us at the Reconnecting Workspaces Coach Certification. Benefit from 24 CCEs with the ICF.

 Are you ready to lead the way as a coach in the hybrid world? 

Join us for the 24 CCE approved Reconnecting Workspaces Certified Coach Training!

The next Reconnecting Workspaces Certified Coach Training program starts Monday August 23rd. It is now accepting registrations with an Early Bird rate until July 30th I hope you will join us!

The program is approved for 24 hours of CCEs with the ICF including 19 hours of core competencies.

Becoming a Certified Reconnecting Workspaces Coach will provide you with the opportunity to :
  • Take the resource into organizations and incorporate it into your work with leaders, team members and other remote and hybrid professionals;
  • Be on the cutting edge of what's happening RIGHT NOW in the workplace (or workspace);
  • Expand your offerings without having to do any heavy lifting of creating things yourself;
  • Build onto the latest research around teams, remote and hybrid work.

As a coach you will be able to use the materials with individual, group and team coaching clients.



We start training on Monday August 23rd with sessions being held:
Monday August 23rd: 130 - 3 pm ET
Tuesday August 24th: 12 - 3 pm ET
Wednesday August 25th:12 - 3 pm ET
Thursday August 26th: 12 - 3 pm ET

Then weekly Tuesday sessions until the last week of September (Tuesdays 1230 - 230pm ET).

  •  A deep dive into the ins and outs of the resource

Given that 3 Billion people started working remotely in March 2020, and many places are starting to reopen, "survey says" that hybrid and remote work is here to stay. Hybrid work has always been more complex that remote-only work, requiring that we have even stronger skills as coaches.

I'd love to have you join us at the front edge of these evolving changes, equipped with a remote and hybrid toolkit, being connected in community with others who are also leading this work.

I hope you will join us for the Reconnecting Workspaces Coach Certification starting on Monday August 23rd for the next cohort of training. As we say at the Remote Pathways podcast, "Let's go remote together!".

Reconnecting Workspaces Coach Training Starts June 21st - Early Bird ends June 1st

I am very excited to announce the release of my next book, and body of work - Reconnecting

Reconnecting Workspaces

Workspaces: Pathways to Thrive in the Virtual, Remote and Hybrid World. It will be out mid-June, quickly followed by a special Reconnecting Workspaces Coach Certification program on June 21st. 

As many places go to reopen and many professionals transition from an all-remote to a hybrid work-arrangement, there is an opportunity to redefine and reimagine what the workspace looks like.

Paradigms around work have shifted and myths have been debunked. Principles and brain tips can help everyone thrive in the workspaces.

As coaches we are uniquely placed to support our clients in rearticulating what the workspace can look like. From leadership, to teamwork practices, meetings to team culture. 

Reconnecting Workspaces coaches will get grounding in the core areas the book covers in the 21 chapters. They will also receive training in core areas for helping remote and hybrid teams, and individuals, thrive in the workspace.

Training will run on June 21 - 23 2021 and then weekly until the end of July. 

Coaches will have the option to add on a special Reconnecting Workspaces Circle Specialization in August for coaches who want to lead RW Circles in organizations.

In 2020, more than 3 billion professionals went remote overnight. Many will be returning to workplace in the next few months. Are you ready to support them?

Download an FAQ about the training and Reconnecting Workspaces Coach Training here.

Early Bird Rate of $2997 US is on until June 1 when the pricing raises to $3997 US.
