Developing High Trust Cross-Cultural Hybrid Teams

The Problem

After years of rapid growth, a large division of a global IT company was struggling to maintain sales momentum. Silos had formed across the organization and trust was low between the region and country teams. The new GM made organizational transformation a top priority.

The Approach

Dr. Hurley assessed and diagnosed team dynamics across the division and then worked with the new GM and his leadership team in putting together a new hybrid workforce plan. The new design addressed the key concerns raised during the assessment by being team-centric and giving country organizations greater autonomy – while being clear on the expectations of behavior change.
