Over the past 18 months, financial services has adopted remote working. Now, the new move to a ‘hybrid’ model – or even a full return to the office – is a major step change. Technology may be in place; desks may be metres apart, but do leaders have the right skills to lead a workforce and working world radically reshaped by events? The ability to empower, inspire and motivate high levels of human performance in this next new normal are only now being formally recognised. And there is very little time to get it right.
