The WABChats Podcast – Dr. Jonathan Trevor – Facilitating innovation and creativity in the hybrid environment
As lawyers and businesspeople, we believe there are experiences, lessons and ideas, applicable to the business world, to be found in many different environments. In WABChats we’ll be chatting with friends of White & Black, be they contacts, clients or advisors – tapping into their business experiences, lessons and ideas and hopefully learning from them ourselves.
In Episode 2 of WABChats Dr. Jonathan Trevor talks to us about his most recent research published in the MIT Slone Management Review, ‘Managing the New Tensions of Hybrid Work’. We discuss how managing hybrid working has become the latest battlefront for competitive advantage, the importance of pragmatism when determining flexible working frameworks and how managerial skills are so key to facilitating a hybrid working environment.
