Creating Transformative Spaces Online

Virtual organisation development


  • Are you wondering how to shape and lead the transition towards hybrid working and multiple work styles?
  • Do you want to create engaging and safe online spaces for dialogue and exploration?
  • Are you puzzling about how to increase collaboration and engagement in your transformation projects but aren’t sure how to do that using virtual platforms?
  • Do you want to create a programme of culture change using virtual and collaborative platforms?

As we continue to reimagine the future of work and navigate our way through the next phase of the pandemic we need to engage those around us in conversation and dialogue to create and shape multiple working styles for our organisations. We need to do that in a way that builds organisational flexibility and allows different perspectives to be heard and acknowledged, and do that through online platforms. Being able to take a strategic step back to look at the spaces you need to create for dialogue is an important first step. Consider which new habits, routines and behaviours that have emerged during the last twelve months will continue to serve you well, and that support your strategic intent.

Feeling confident and skilful in designing and facilitating transformative spaces online is more critical than ever right now. Transformative spaces are generative spaces that enable us to bring together people who care about a topic, and to create a space where they can contribute to generating new possibilities for the future of hybrid working.

Even when physical work places are open again, there has been such a fundamental shift in our working patterns that we believe there will always be a need and desire for remote working and virtual spaces. It is estimated that 25-30% of the workforce will be working from home several days a week by the end of 2021 which means the reimagination and integration of multiple work styles with organisational working structures and cultures.
