“Hybrid working is a way of making our employees and customers happier, and allows us to make our organization a healthy and productive one.”

- Isabel de Clercq, author of Hybrid Working: A Manifesto

One of the hottest topics in our industry circle right now is the notion of hybrid working. Isabel de Clercq is a lover of hybrid work because it brings together her favourite topics: lifelong learning through asynchronous knowledge sharing; productivity through focus and technology; digital language; and enhanced self-consciousness.

In this episode, Isabel, founder of Connect | Share | Lead, trend catcher, fire starter, sparkle architect and respected author, joins Nancy Goebel to share more about her third book, Hybrid Working: A Manifesto. The book is a reflection on how knowledge workers can bring their effectiveness, creativity and wellbeing at work to the next level, lighting the way through seven suggestions.

In this fascinating discussion with Nancy, Isabel shares the inspirations for her work to date and her dreams for the future. She outlines five of the seven key ideas from the book, highlighting those that are most pertinent to digital workplace practitioners.

As the discussion develops, they talk about the importance of using our time wisely through ‘high value activities’ and ‘slow thinking’, and explore why and when colleagues should come together in person.
