The Houston Midtown Chapter of The Society for Financial Awareness Presents MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

The COVID-19 pandemic forced an unprecedented experiment that reshaped white-collar work and turned remote work into a kind of “new normal.” Now comes the hard part.

We were joined today by author, Peter Cappelli to discuss his new book, THE FUTURE OF THE OFFICE Work from Home, Remote Work, and the Hard Choices We All Face.

Many employees want to continue this “new normal” and keep working remotely, and most at least want the ability to work occasionally from home. But for employers, the benefits of employees working from home, or hybrid approaches, are not so obvious. What should both groups do?

A prescient new book, The Future of the Office: Work from Home, Remote Work, and the Hard Choices We All Face by Peter Cappelli lays out the facts to provide everyone involved with a vision of their futures. Cappelli unveils the surprising tradeoffs both employers and employees may have to accept to get what they want.

Peter Cappelli is the George W. Taylor Professor of Management at the Wharton School and director of Wharton’s Center for Human Resources. He writes a monthly column on workforce issues for Human Resource Executive Online and is a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal and the Harvard Business Review.

Why do some team members not get along? What is the best way to get new teams and ad-hoc teams to maximize their performance in the least amount of time? How can meetings be designed to achieve useful outcomes?

We were joined today by author, Valerie Patrick to discuss her book, When Bad Teams Happen to Good People.

Teams are the source of problem-solving and innovation that today’s organizations need to survive and thrive in an increasingly complex and challenging marketplace.

Teamwork is hard because there is no magic formula or step-by-step procedure to ensure results. Think of a programmer asked to develop new features for a cell phone: they write new code, test the code, troubleshoot problems encountered, revise the code, and repeat the testing process until the new features work without problems. Similarly, a team leader asked to deliver specified outcomes develops a plan, runs team meetings, troubleshoots problems encountered, revises the plan, and repeats until the team outcomes are achieved. The difference is that a programmer has tools to help streamline troubleshooting, while team leaders do not—until now.
