Post-COVID Reflections on Teamwork with Synchronous & Asynchronous Communication


At the heart of the issue of “back to office” is trust, or lack thereof, from management and the sense of disempowerment by the employees. Fair enough, nothing beats face-to-face interaction and there is valid cause for making in-office work back the norm.

So as leaders, what can we do to lessen the stigma of “back to office” and help our people feel that they’re not necessarily “giving up the freedom of how to work” they discovered during COVID times? The key is asynchronous communication and its effective use in balance with synchronous communication.

In this session we will share insights on how asynchronous communication evolved during COVID with advancement in digital technology, and tips on how to leverage its use back in office as powerful team engagement tools.

About the Mental Model Dōjō

We’ve got to have many mental models in our head, and array our experiences on a “latticework” of mental models, says Charlie Munger. OD (Organization Development) in today’s context is nothing but complex. There’s no magic bullet singular solution to the many challenges that leaders and teams face in day-to-day work. We need a multiplex of tools, approaches, frameworks, i.e. mental models.

We created the Mental Model Dōjō learning community at Agile OD to foster lifelong learning for our current and alumni clients, and to invite anyone with the learning mindset to explore and experiment the many cognitive tools, thinking frameworks, communication approaches, collaboration modalities and, simply put, philosophies created by the great minds of old and new.
