How to Better (and Intentionally) Connect Your Employees, According to Rob Cross
Leading organizations are much more likely to be intentional in connecting employees; and to train, encourage, and incentivize managers to think strategically about how to facilitate those interactions. In fact, research by i4cp and thought leader Rob Cross shows that leaders at high-performance organizations are 8x more likely to actively help others build effective networks.
Rob Cross, the Edward A. Madden Professor of Global Leadership at Babson College and author of multiple Harvard Business Review cover stories including “Collaborative Overload,” will return to present on this important and ever-evolving topic at the i4cp 2023 Next Practices Now Conference (March 27 – 30, at the Fairmont Scottsdale).
