A hybrid work atmosphere can in many ways make us a lot more flexible and create greater freedom to work anywhere, anytime, and as it best suits us. The workplace is becoming an even more important hub for innovation, networking, and team building. Although it provides employees and leaders more freedom, it requires an increased amount of self-leadership.
