Interview with J.R. Sloan, CIO at the State of Arizona

Part I of today's episode we cover:

  • How leaders get hybrid wrong (and what to do about it)
  • How J.R. & team are helping to foster a hybrid model that brings the best of his team to be more purposeful, productive, agile, and flexible.
  • We talk about the difference between the Jobs and Tasks across J.R.'s team in a hybrid model.
  • According to Microsoft, there's a survey that says that 40% of employees are thinking of quitting their jobs (click here). The survey highlighted seven major trends (which we cover below).
  1. Flexible work is here to stay
  2. Leaders are out of touch with employees and need a wake-up call
  3. High productivity is masking an exhausted workforce
  4. Gen Z is at risk and will need to be re-energized
  5. Shrinking networks are endangering innovation
  6. Authenticity will spur productivity and wellbeing
  7. Talent is everywhere in a hybrid world

My conversation with J.R. was inspired by a timely article from the Harvard Business Review - How to Do Hybrid Right: When designing flexible work arrangements, focus on individual human concerns, not just institutional ones.
