As companies begin to shape and define what the future of work will look like, it’s clear that the path ahead isn’t clearly paved. Some companies that were quick to declare their destination early on have already begun to shift course. Some hope that following someone else’s map will get them where they need to be, while other companies have started to backpedal to the familiarity of how things used to be instead of braving the challenges of the uncharted terrain.
Now that the romanticization of hybrid work has dwindled and the real work has begun, how do we ensure that we take the time to work together and be intentional about the direction we’re headed and the path we’re creating along the way?
In this episode, I am joined by Kate Lister and Sam Fisher as we explore how companies can propel themselves forward by slowing down and being intentional.
Kate Lister is a recognized workplace thought leader and president of Global Workplace Analytics, a research-based consulting firm that has been helping communities and organizations optimize flexible and distributed workplace strategies for more than fifteen years.

Her perspectives on how COVID-19 will change the way people work have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, and dozens of other respected news outlets. In July of 2020, she was one of only three witnesses invited to testify before a U.S. Senate committee on the expansion of telework in government post-COVID-19.
