Leadership Espresso – Leading Hybrid Teams


About this session:

Whether teams are dispersed, together, or a mix of both, as leaders we have a key role in re-shaping our cultures so that colleagues can thrive and do their best work. The emerging extent of flexible and remote working is largely uncharted territory in the NHS, in which there will be pitfalls we wish to avoid and also huge opportunities to improve the way we work together.

This Hybrid Working series provides protected ‘headspace’ and ‘thinking time’ for busy managers to consider thought-provoking ideas, share views, discuss issues with colleagues, reflect on your own practice, apply your learning to your own context and ask any questions you have.

Please note that these sessions will not cover the contractual, legal or logistical aspects of hybrid working.

The session will be virtually delivered via Zoom. Please ensure you have accessibility for this platform in order to attend.

What will be covered?

In a hybrid working context, how do we:

  • Model inclusive leadership?
  • Take care of our own and each other’s wellbeing?
  • Balance individual, team and organisational needs?
  • Adapt our own leadership behaviours and approach?
  • Facilitate effective meetings and meaningful, human connections?

Who the session is for:

The NHS Leadership Academy provides leadership development for people of all backgrounds and experiences across health and care.


Pre-work will be sent one week before the session, which will require attendees to read and watch (no more than 30 minutes) before attending the session. The session itself will incorporate learnings from the pre-work, so to ensure you get the most from the interactive session, please complete this beforehand.

The Leadership Short provides a video overview of key issues and ideas to consider when leading hybrid teams. The Leadership Bite offers a number of practical ways of applying these ideas to practice. Both are pre-work for the interactive workshop. In the Leadership Espresso virtual interactive workshop, you will be encouraged to share views, discuss issues with colleagues, reflect on your own practice, apply your learning to your own context and explore the challenges and opportunities you face.
