The Successful Hybrid Team: What the Best Hybrid Teams Know About Culture that Others Don’t (But Wish They Did)
Proven strategies to build, nurture, and retain world-class talent in a hybrid environment
In The Successful Hybrid Team: What the Best Hybrid Teams Know About Culture that Others Don’t (But Wish They Did), award-winning diversity and inclusion expert Perrine Farque delivers an eye-opening look into what distinguishes world-class teams from the also-rans. The book explores the permanent changes being made in the modern workplace, how hybrid work is fundamentally changing the nature of teams, and the overwhelming importance of culture in determining performance.
The author introduces a four-pillar framework that details what you need to do to hire, lead, and retain a high-performing team in a hybrid world. You’ll discover how to create a unified hybrid leadership team, how to build extreme clarity and transparency, how to overcommunicate through digital channels, and how to unify cross-cultural remote teams with cultural awareness.
The book also offers:
A deep dive into topics like how and why meetings are important, and how to best leverage them in a hybrid environment
Descriptions of the most common pitfalls experienced by those leading hybrid teams and how to avoid them
Useful tips, resources, and checklists that supplement the four-pillar framework discussed in the book
A can’t-miss resource for executives, managers, and other business leaders who find themselves dealing with the new reality of hybrid and remote work, The Successful Hybrid Team will also earn a place in the libraries of human resources and DEI professionals, remote workers, and anyone else who regularly interacts with colleagues, direct reports, or supervisors in a hybrid environment.
"The genie is out of the bottle, hybrid work is here to stay and shape the future of work. But, how can organizations adapt to these rapid changes? And how can managers successfully lead this new workforce? Perrine tackles every aspect of the management of hybrid teams from productivity and performance to inclusion and engagement. The book includes practical examples highlighting what is changing and how those organisations looking into the future are getting ahead of the game delivering better results and attracting the best talent.”

About the author
Perrine Farque is the best-selling author of Inclusion: The Ultimate Secret to an Organisation’s Success, and the founder of Inspired Human, a leading diversity and inclusion consultancy based in London. Perrine was also nominated in the Top 50 Most Influential Women in UK Tech by Computer Weekly and a Judge at the Diversity in Tech Award. Perrine helps organisations create inclusive and diverse workplaces that better attract, retain and develop talent. During her career, Perrine observed that the most successful teams that work in a hybrid work environment (both remotely and in the office) follow a specific framework, either consciously or unconsciously. She described in her latest book this framework to build a successful hybrid team. Perrine helped many organisations become more inclusive and diverse including Amazon, Meta (Facebook), DHL and many others. Perrine’s work explores a new perspective to diversity and inclusion, in which business leaders think of diversity and inclusion as their top priority because it is the most important competitive advantage, rather than a moral imperative or the right thing to do.
