Tools You Can Use

  • There is no one-size-fits-all system for hybrid work. So The Predictive Index created a new toolkit, which includes The Complete Hybrid Team Communication Guide to help you win the hybrid workplace. Some employees may return to an office full-time, while others will continue to enjoy the flexibility afforded by remote work—and our new default mode of leading should account for people no matter where they are. Whether you’re communicating via Slack, email, Zoom, Asana, or in-person meetings, this guide will help you communicate well as a hybrid team.
