Most leaders of hybrid workplaces don’t realise the inefficiencies created by hybrid, which are the reason project timelines stretch out, teams become siloed and frustration levels climb. Neil Calvert takes a fantastically useful approach to helping organisations change their systems and processes, including the way hybrid teams communicate and manage their information.
I thoroughly enjoyed having Neil on the podcast. He’s a passionate advocate for more efficient ways of working, who didn’t stop at seeing this huge need in organisations and businesses but co-created a tool that would help modern workplaces to deliver these efficiencies.
LINQ has been applied to technology adoption, but it’s also having fantastic application in helping teams improve the quality of their meetings, in reducing ‘busy work’ and improving communication.
I talked with Neil what type of organisation wouldn’t benefit from this approach, how quickly the change happens and the size of impact using LINQ can make to time and money. Each of these areas is nothing short of impressive.
If you’re interested in improving the quality of communication within and between your teams, while working hybrid, Neil and I have joined up to address this through focusing on one meeting at a time.
