Informal networks and innovation capacity

How do cigarette breaks, gossip and other informal networks influence your capacity to innovate? I would argue they do more than we think (even if you arn't a smoker!). Come along to this free event on March 20th with Dr Karen Stephenson to find out more.

The aim of the workshop is to provide you with a framework and language to identify the roles played by people in your team or organisation, providing you with a more holistic view of how they operate.  This understanding will enhance your capabilities as a leader or manager and help you to develop efficient networks that maximise productivity through trust-based relationships.

Dr. Karen Stephenson, an influential social network theorist, will argue that the association between trust and learning is an instrument of vast, if frequently untapped organisational power. “People have at their very finger tips…tremendous amounts of tacit knowledge, which are not captured in computer systems or on paper. Trust is the utility through which this knowledge flows.”
