Why organisational connectivity?
(Leveraging the Science of Human Networks)
The nature of relationships and patterns of interactions existing among employees of a company and management greatly influences how work is actually getting done and shows to what degree the work environment is being inclusive or not. Quite often a traditional organisational chart has little to do with the degree of connectivity within a company. Through Organisational Connectivity it is possible to find out where critical breakdowns in the relationships between individuals or groups are likely to happen. Organisational connectivity helps companies determine how far they are pursuing a good gender, generational and racial inclusiveness in their leadership strategies.
Christian Baldia recently presented his concept of organisational connectivity to a wide and diversified European and international audience during the first World Diversity LeadershipSummit – Europe in March 2010 in Vienna, Austria. Many WDLS-EU 2010 attendees have since then expressed their wish to have an in depth session on this very innovative management tool.
Organisational Connectivity is the ideal advanced training session for companies, diversity experts, policy and decisionmakers, diversity practitioners and all other stakeholders determined to promote Diversity and Inclusion!
Short Summary of WDLS-EU Special Session “Organisational Connectivity”
The much asked for Special in-depth Session on „Organisational Connectivity” with Christian
Baldia took place from 30th September -1st October 2010 at the Vienna Chamber of Commerce
and Industry in Vienna, Austria.
The major issues dealt with during the seminar included:
Target groups of the session were CEOs, diversity experts and practitioners, HR and CSR managers, diversity trainers and coaches, organisational development specialists and anyone interested in diversity and inclusion.
Attendees came from three different countries, Austria, Germany and Slovakia and included representatives from the Austrian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, from OMV Gas and Oil Production, from the British Council, from the European Central Bank, from the Austrian Red Cross and CEOs of various Diversity and Consulting companies.
The first day focused on an in-depth introduction on what Organisational Connectivity is and how it can be used as a new framework for understanding and managing inclusion and diversity.
Organisational Connectivity or Social Network Analysis additionally uncovers the patterns of interaction and collaboration between individuals. Organisational Connectivity offers information that does not appear on a traditional organisation chart, but it provides highly useful details about group interrelationships and how work actually gets done.
The second day mainly saw the active participation of attendees, who were divided into groups and received exercises to do in order to gain a completely new perspective and understanding of their own work environment and work or social network. Furthermore questions were directly and caseorientedly answered by the expert, Mr Baldia.
