The secret to building a team is to optimize the team for growth and inclusivity. This starts with being open to hybrid work, hiring people who can be productive wherever they are, having a plan for developing each employee no matter where they are on their personal S Curve of Learning, and then ensuring that your hybrid work place is inclusive. Your team is a collection of S Curves. Orient yourselves for growth by optimizing those curves.
