Many organizations are rethinking the way work happens and the HR programs that drive business results, but does "rethinking" simply mean making small adjustments that will have small impact? What if you could apply a profoundly different way of thinking to radically improve employee onboarding, maximize team effectiveness and collaboration, improve inclusion, and enhance employee well-being?

Among other things.

The pandemic has made clear the benefits of social connectivity, and in the context of business, the importance of understanding how, when, where, and through who work happens. With the need to maintain innovation in a remote working environment and diversify your employees' networks in a hybrid setting, organizational network analysis (ONA) has become a critical tool for high-performance organizations.

In this interactive workshop, Rob Cross, professor at Babson College, co-founder of the Connected Commons (co-managed by i4cp), and ONA expert will walk you through the many benefits of such analysis, the tools needed, and how the concepts can be applied to:

  • Promote rapid innovation 
  • Introduce new leaders 
  • Drive diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Improve employee well-being
  • Lead a culture renovation
  • Manage a merger or acquisition

The workshop will include multiple opportunities to meet and interact with peers at other organizations, share ideas, and outline practical next steps to make progress within your own team, department, or company. Attendees will also receive a copy of Rob's new book Beyond Collaboration Overload.
