Curiosity

Hybrid work environments call for self-learning and having a curious trait predicts one's willingness to learn and continue to grow and develop their own potential with little need for a manager.

Curious people engage more in solving problems creatively and are more likely to connect with people who are different in a sense.

Hybrid work environments are well-suited for curious people because they are rewarded with a fast-moving environment and the opportunity to work with diversity in experiences, backgrounds, and values.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Openness to Experience

The hybrid age has diluted the norms of governing work, we then are more likely to thrive by coming up with new ideas, turning them to innovations, and being open to new ways of working.

Being open to experience aids us in defying our own limitations and expectations of ourselves. It makes us venture outside of our comfort zone forcing us to learn, dicuss, or experience things that challenge our core assumptions. It builds our character, flexibility, and our feelings towards uncertainty.

Empathy

Having empathy allows us to understand the thoughts and feelings of another person.

In a hybrid work environment, we need to make an effort in order to understand each other better and this requires empathy. In order to practice and develop empathy, we need to take the time to get to know the other person well and take on their perspective.

The more we develop empathy, the easier we'll be able to navigate other's emotions.

The hybrid work model

While many institutions have called for a full return to the office, others are moving in the opposite direction. These leaders have a responsibility to promote a remote-first mindset.

Yet, companies that are moving to a hybrid work model are wrestling with how to best deal with the proximity bias - the tendency to give preferential treatment to those who are physically present in the office.

The hybrid workplace

The hybrid format is proving to be more than a passing trend. This shift is because most of the long-term effects of the pandemic are largely unknown, incorporating remote working into the business model is prudent.

Moreover, it’s in line with what employees want. Now that workers have had a taste of such a choice, flexibility comes up repeatedly, as one of the most important things for employees. And, as people become more conscious of the social and environmental impact of what we do, companies have a responsibility to cut unnecessary travel.
