Our recent HRCI-certified webinar featured David Sturt, Executive Vice President of the O.C. Tanner Institute and New York Times bestselling author of Great Work: How to Make a Difference People Love. During the event, David shared compelling research and best practice strategies around new ways to collaborate that will help anyone in any role innovate and deliver great work. Below are highlights from the webinar. We also invite you to watch the recoding.
Increasing collaboration, trust, and connection is a top priority for many teams and organizations. Why? When you break down silos and increase collaboration, you’re creating space for innovation and creativity. You’re, in fact, creating a way for people to come together on the next big idea that could drive your organization forward.
During this webinar, David drew on several examples from leading organizations to show why going outside of your comfort zone and talking to your “outer circle” is the best way to generate new ideas. The 7 core benefits of such collaboration are as follows:
- More original ideas
- Proxy for the recipient
- Naysaying points of view
- Specialized know-how
- Exhilarating confirmation
- A difference-making community
- Confident clarity
