The Art of Delegation in a Hybrid Environment
Malcolm will explore the Art of Delegation in a hybrid environment, including the dynamically changing leadership styles required – mirrored against competencies and the associated risks of people working in isolation.
There have been advantages and disadvantages of these new working arrangements over the last two years, in terms of human motivation, and these are considered in terms of leveraging maximum motivation going forwards – given that hybrid environments are probably here to stay.
The concept and methodology of grip are explored in remote working and hybrid environments with regard to maintaining high employee engagement.
The session concludes with five essential action points to take away to ensure that your new ways of working are as equally productive as ever.
Malcolm Smith has always believed in the power of people above systems, and that true leadership is about developing business environments that create wealth. His prime focus is on how energy is used in a transaction, whether this is a presentation, sales pitch or negotiation.
His background of science and marketing within industrial groups gives him unique insights into how businesses transact and develop. Today he employs this considerable expertise through a portfolio of non-executive directorships and owned businesses.
Malcolm mentors senior managers on a one-to-one basis, and develops, coaches and speaks to more formal groups around the emotional issues of running a business.
Robust and pragmatic in his approach, Malcolm always ensures that people he works with have the right level of challenge and support to make changes and deliver more.
