Title: Managing Multi-Faceted and Multi-Directional Relationships
Speakers: Dr Philip H. Mirvis, Dr. Susan Albers Mohrman, Prof Rob Cross
Time: Thursday, 2nd December at 7am (Pacific) / 10am (Eastern) / 3pm (London) / 8.30pm (Delhi). This webinar is scheduled for 90 minutes (including Q&A).
Generating and disseminating knowledge relevant to practice requires expanding our conceptual and empirical reach and our aspirations for impact beyond our institutional and discipline-based communities. We focus on the many and multi-faceted relational challenges we face: forming relationships that expand our conceptual and empirical reach; multi-directional communication and exchange of knowledge across boundaries; and addressing challenges associated with doing research in the context of conflicting stakeholder purposes and perspectives. We emphasize the importance of reflection, a clear and transparent sense of purpose, multi-directional communication, and collaboration.
