613 Lorna Watkinson: Hybrid Company Culture

How to Build, Onboard and Inspire Successful Teams

2020 was the year that changed everyone’s world. It shook us out of our routines, forced us into uncomfortable, uncertain and in some cases tragic situations, and also provided so much opportunity for innovation and growth.

And while we aren’t past Covid yet, the world won’t be going back to the way it was.

So what does that mean for businesses and company culture? And what will communication and company culture look like in a hybrid digital and physical world where successful entrepreneurs and business owners must now build strong working relationships with team members you may never actually meet in person?

I know all about this personally, building my interactive podcasting app Podopolo from 2 to 25 people this past year over Zoom and Slack – and what it takes to build a culture where people love the mission, the work, and each other.

Lorna Watkinson was an executive at Proctor & Gamble for 20 years before she set out on her own as the CEO and founder of Vibrant Thinking. Today Lorna is here to talk about how to build a great team culture, the challenges of remote and hybrid working environments, and how to profit from all the fast-pace change.

Listen today to learn how digital team building works, and what corporate workplaces will look like post-pandemic.

Lorna says she’s experienced how miscommunication causes disruption that stands in the way of building a successful business. She also knows how to build very strong working relationships with team members you may never actually meet in person. She says creativity is the key to success.
