4 Tips for Managers in a Hybrid World

1) Ask your team members how they like to be managed.

  • How can I get the best of you?
  • How would I get the worst of you?
  • What do you need from me to do your best work?
  • Do you like small talk and pleasantries in emails or conversations, or do you prefer to get down to business?
  • How do you feel about texts, audio calls, emails, Slack as different methods of communication?
  • What time of day works best for meetings vs. deep work for you?
  • How do you like to receive recognition?

2) Regularly meet with those you manage in a meaningful way.

3) Make feedback future-oriented.

4) Bring career goals into the conversation.
