Are we ignoring internal networking?
This piece in Monday’s Financial Times intrigued me.
Stefan Stern writes, “All kinds of unseen bottlenecks and undiscovered geniuses may be lurking within your business. But until you start asking your people the right questions – who talks to whom, who inspires whom – and analysing the answers, you may never find out what it is that people in your organisation already know. Your employees will never make the right connections that could lead to valuable innovation.”
So I’m wondering.
- Is the flow of information between employees creating the right kind of productive communication?
- Are collaborative networks developing? What can I do to nurture them?
- What about the interactions between our external networks and our internal networks?
Are your people talking productively? Join the discussion!
