Hybrid meetings the focus of upcoming workshop

Over the past two years, with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual meetings have become a regular occurrence.

With Queen’s employees returning to the office and others continuing to work from home, the hybrid model has entered the workplace.

To help leaders navigate and achieve success in the hybrid workplace the Foundational Leadership Alumni Group (FLAG)  will host an in-person networking event focused on communication and collaboration in a hybrid workplace on Tuesday, Aug. 16 from 10:30 am-Noon in Mac-Corry, B176 Seminar room.

“FLAG works to create continual learning opportunities for leaders at Queen’s. This workshop is a great opportunity to connect and learn from each other,” says Donna Janiec, Vice-Principal (Finance and Administration). “Our employees are our most important resource, and my office is thrilled to support the exceptional leadership of the FLAG Steering Committee in their commitment to leadership development and fostering a community of leaders.”

Following an initial introduction, the event will feature four table group discussions on the following topics:

  • Tech tips for engagement in a hybrid meeting
  • Preplanning hybrid meetings and communications
  • Determining whether a gathering should be in-person, hybrid or virtual
  • Building connection and team engagement for leaders in a hybrid workplace

The event is open to all leaders at Queen’s and will be facilitated by the FLAG Steering Committee.

FLAG advances the strategic priorities of the university by developing emotional intelligence and building a sound understanding of equity, diversity, inclusion, and indigeneity among the University’s leaders. The Group facilitates learning opportunities that deepen connection and understanding of people and how they work. Anyone who is interested in growing as a leader is welcome at FLAG.
