Effective Collaboration in an Era of Digital Hypergrowth
Effective collaboration is critical to sustainable innovation and business agility, but it is not always easy to achieve.
Individuals, teams and organisations need to combine technical skills with intrapersonal capabilities and interpersonal dynamics to deliver high performance.
The last few months have taught us that working together digitally presents benefits and challenges, most of which will be magnified as we move deeper into the age of virtual work.
In this interactive Virtual Masterclass we will explore the meaning of collaboration and how we can expect it to evolve in digital work environments. We will investigate how we can use three core ingredients to foster a collaborative work culture: Purpose, Trust and Inclusion.Watch on Demand

In this Episode
What are the impacts of collaboration in the organisation? When people know why they're doing what they're doing, they really care and feel that they're in. Working in an environment where they can give their best, they can collaborate to the best benefit of the end result. That's how they drive engagement. If that's the case, and they actively feel they contribute to the overall, they also have much-reduced stress, because the eyes on the ball, the eyes on the result, it's about innovation and productivity and less about maybe political hurdles. Everything else that might come with it.
How should the way we collaborate adapt to the digital world? Collaboration is more important now than ever before because everything is much faster now. Digitization has sped up everything, has compressed time, has brought everything closer. Make sure that you collaborate and take the time. Make sure you really connect with the people and take the time to talk about things like purpose. (...) The new normal is about collaboration, virtual work, and trust and purpose. We will see more of that because otherwise, we can't work together.
Collaboration without self-awareness does not work. Britta Posner
