The Hybrid Work Hype: Theory vs Reality | Real talk, Real experiences, Real outcomes

September 8, 2022 @ 7:30 am - 8:30 am

What it’s about: 

“In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.” – Albert Einstein


Don’t we all love the structure and certainty in theory? Theoretically, we have all the ingredients for hybrid ways of work to succeed:

  1. Digital collaborative technology accelerated by the pandemic
  2. Almost 2 years of a proof of concept thanks to lockdowns
  3. Gen Y and Z leaders bringing fresh values to the business equation


Yet, how many of us have had a good honest conversation with our teams about the reality of applying this?


We are seeing that there is not one recipe for success (or failure) but many more, plus a whole range of real risks and challenges that we’re all facing today. The truth is, many business leaders and teams are still grappling to find the ‘right’ way or ‘balanced’ way to hybrid without negatively impacting the business on a finance, operational, people and culture level.


Join our next Space for Change Panel with our guest panel, who bring their unique experience and expertise: 

  • Anurag Kanwar – Compliance and Continuous Improvement Director | Group Colleges Australia
  • Gaurav Wadekar – Lead Business Analyst | Banking
  • Samantha Drudge – Change Consultant | Peopleful
  • Temre Green, PhD – Head of Consulting, ANZ | Human Performance Technology by DTS


We will all be getting real about hybrid ways of work and come together as a community to unpack the good, the bad and the curious.


Our diverse panel will look at the challenges from both employer and employee perspectives and share real experiences of working in a hybrid universe.

What we will cover: 
  • Your experience with working in hybrid
  • Explore the perspectives from both the employer and employee perspective
  • Get clear on our role as leaders of this change
  • Share skills and tips for making sense of the reality of hybrid and
  • How can we make hybrid truly work for us

Space for Change™

A collective of like-minded transformation consultants who are passionate about human-centric approaches to change. We catch up monthly and talk about topics that matter.

Why? Because everybody deserves to find their place, now and in the future, so we can make history.

At Earth2Mars, we believe and invest in our human potential to expand our horizons and continuously learn and grow together. For us, our mission is to see humanity become an interplanetary species, but how can we ever hope to coexist on Mars if we still haven’t learned to do this on our home planet first?
