Need Resilience? Look to Your Networks
May 20 @ 11:20 am - 12:20 pm EDT
One constant throughout tumultuous 2020 has been change. Organizations have been faced with unprecedented challenges that have forced them to rethink, retrench, rejigger, and revitalize. One more “re” word has been necessary: resilience. The traumas of the past year have wounded individuals and organizations and made even more evident the need for resiliency.
In this session, we will focus on where resiliency lives in organizations: in their networks. Networks are the webs of informal relationships that people create in order to complete routine work, make decisions, solve problems, and respond to changing conditions. They are more flexible and agile than organizational hierarchies and better prepared to respond to change. We will discuss how participants can leverage the power of networks to support strategy formulation and implementation.
