IMI Talent Forum 2:  Embedding Talent into your Business Strategy: The  power of leadership, influence and networks

Rob Cross, PhD is a professor of commerce at University of Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce. His research focuses on how relationships and informal networks in organisations can provide competitive advantage in knowledge-intensive work.

This session will describe how successful leaders obtain performance impact through unit level networks by:

• Managing the centre of the network

• Leveraging the periphery of the network

• Selectively bridging organisational silos: Facilitating effective collaboration at key intersections in the network (such as across functional lines or physical distance)

• Developing awareness of colleagues’ expertise throughout the network

• Minimising insularity: Managing targeted relations with key internal and external clients and stakeholders The presentation will interactively take participants through these network dimensions as well as illustrate where rising stars undermine their effectiveness by falling into one of six common network “traps.”
