This half-day agenda can be tailored to the needs of your organization and expanded to be a full day if appropriate. Sessions are designed to be highly interactive with attention to the specific findings within your organization.
An upfront discussion establishes Rob’s background while also conveying the performance, innovation and quality of work life benefits a range of organizations have obtained from a network perspective. This opening also conveys some network basics that help people interactively engage with case examples and diagrams in the next section.
This section entails a presentation of key results from the network analysis (at the full network level) and common changes organizations undertake to address these challenges/opportunities.
This section entails a 30 minute breakout on either pre-selected or self selected network opportunities. The result of this section of time is a set of action items on a flip chart (and often a gallery walk discussion with other sub-groups).
This section reconvenes the group and reviews a few high level insights as well as reviews common changes organization’s make as a product of network results.
This section reviews personal networks as a means of driving leadership effectiveness and overall performance through more effective talent management. It specifically focuses on three dimensions of networks (behavioral, relational and structural) that Rob’s work shows distinguishes high performers as well as six common traps that leaders and rising stars fall into if not managing their own connectivity at some level.
Each participant identifies and discusses two network strengths and opportunities with a pre-defined peer in the room.
This section first describes (through a case example) the substantial performance and innovation impacts that come when leaders are able to assess and then improve energy/enthusiasm in interactions throughout a network. Rob uses a couple of video clips and an activity to drive these ideas into specific behaviors and a concluding point for people in the room to consider how they can improve behaviorally and relationally.
