Dr. Joseph A. Allen, is a Professor of Industrial and Organizational Psychology at the University of Utah and is a meeting scientist, while Karin Reed, is an executive communications specialist and CEO of Speaker Dynamics. They are the authors of SUDDENLY HYBRID: Managing the Modern Meeting (Wiley, February 2, 2022).
Reed is an Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist and now focuses on helping business professionals to be confident communicators on any platform― in person, on camera, or through virtual communication tools.
Dr. Allen's research focus is on the study of workplace meetings, organizational community engagement, and occupational safety and health.
After the award-winning success of their first book together, SUDDENLY VIRTUAL: Making Remote Meetings Work, Dr. Allen and Reed have combined forces again to deliver best practices based on the science of meetings. In SUDDENLY HYBRID: Managing the Modern Meeting (Wiley, February 2, 2022), they combine their complementary expertise with ongoing research conducted pre-pandemic, pandemic, and still-lingering-pandemic to help meeting leaders and attendees manage this challenging but promising multimedia meeting environment.
A second major meeting disruption is underway—no longer simply virtual—the hybrid meeting is becoming the new norm. Whether you’re beginning to go back to the office, have out of town new-hires, or prefer flexible working locations and hours, hybrid meetings provide the communication connective tissue for today’s global workforce.
But flexible doesn’t mean easy.
Making hybrid meetings work well requires planning, preparation, and know-how.
