Since the start of the pandemic, many people have found themselves working from home. This new way of working not only has disrupted the routine of many people, employees and leaders alike, but also posed challenges to the way we work with others. Building relationships in a virtual environment seems hard, and collaborating effectively even harder, many leaders report. Yet, research tells us, it may be easier than we think.
Join us as Francesca Gino, bestselling author and Harvard Business School Professor, examines what the best leaders are doing to assure people are working effectively with one another even in a remote work and developing authentic relationships even at a distance. She’ll talk about what we all stand to learn from these leaders that will prepare us better for what’s next.
Gino’s research focuses on judgment and decision-making, negotiation, ethics, motivation, productivity, and creativity. She has studied how irrelevant factors and hidden influences can have profound consequences on decision-making and behaviour, often diverting us from our original plans and desires. And she has spent over a decade identifying and studying rebels in organizations worldwide, arguing that the cultivation of rebel talent plays a key role in how businesses evolve and prosper in the face of fierce competition, and turbulent times. She also asserts that rebellion has an added benefit beyond the workplace, leading to a more vital, engaged, and fulfilling life. Rebels, with their unconventional outlooks, are among those who change the world for the better. By defying the status quo, they are masters of innovation and reinvention.
