Julia Hobsbawm: Reimagining workplaces

Available on these channels and more

How do you create the best places to work? This is a question many leaders are asking themselves as they figure out new hybrid environments. To do this, they need to understand the features and characteristics of high performing workplaces and the enabling organisational culture.

In this podcast, Julia Hobsbawm, author of The Nowhere Office and Bloomberg columnist, gives her insights into the workplace revolution. She shares her thoughts on where work is heading and how leaders need to listen, ask and iterate to create the conditions for high performance.

You’ll hear about:

  • What the nowhere office is.
  • Obstacles that stop thoughts becoming actions.
  • What’s going on in the hybrid world.
  • What’s happening to the demand for office space.
  • Are there winners and losers in the corporate real estate marketplace?
  • The change that is in the air.
  • Why it’s people that matter, not work.
  • How to bring learners and leavers together.

The best bits of these conversations are captured in my newsletter Strategic Leader.
