"This book gets right to the questions every leader I know is wrestling with: should we fully embrace a hybrid workplace? If we do, what should our approach be? The authors offer a practical and refreshing take: hybrid workplaces are the new norm; to make them work, employees need to be listened to and trusted and leaders need to rise to the occasion. I love the clear call to action for leaders and how much support leaders will find here – action steps to guide them through this important challenge, one step at a time."

Duff McDonald
"A clear-eyed effort to grapple with the emerging challenges of the hybrid workplace. No company is average; every company needs to make considered choices about where and when their employees will work in the future. Time and again, the authors remind us of the fact that reconciling and unifying diverse points of view is the key to enlightened leadership. And while there may seem to be a near-infinite array of options, they’re all contained in what a company is and wants to be."
