Get your team’s mojo back: 2 tips

by on
in Career Management,Workplace Communication

You know the drill. Budgets tighten and the ax falls on meetings and travel.

This happens all the time, even though leaders know the importance of networks and tightknit communities.

While it’s true that too much cohesiveness can make an organization rigid by shutting off the flow of new information and ideas (aka “groupthink”), it’s also true that collaborative teams rock.

Two rules on networking:
  1. When times get rough, invest more to promote internal and external networks. They made your outfit a winner to start with, and they’re your best shot at rejuvenation.

  2. Don’t overmanage networking opportunities. It’s all too common for meeting organizers to overschedule sessions, leaving colleagues desperate to have a break and a chat, not just a few tight smiles across the conference table. Overbooking meetings will leave your people exhausted and frustrated. Give them the chance to connect.
