As the collaborative intensity of work has exploded, people's experience of work is increasingly affected by the networks they form and the nature of the collaborations they engage in. People that experience and inspire trust, purpose and a sense of energy in their network are more likely to give greater effort, report higher engagement levels, be upwardly mobile and stay longer in their organization. Better information, opportunities and talent flow their way over time as a product of their ability to promote pull in networks.
We have studied people who are more effective in creating high-quality connections and found that they engage in behaviors that: 1) create trust in their abilities and intentions; 2) generate a sense of purpose and meaning for others in their work; and 3) energize people in their work. This diagnostic enables you to see which of these behaviors are strengths and which are opportunities for you.
Your results have been organized below into the three areas that we found deliver the greatest results: Build Trust, Cultivate Purpose, and Generate Energy. As you explore each of these areas you will see the specific items where your current practices are strengths that should be sustained and nurtured. Your results will also reveal those areas where you have opportunities to immediately improve by revising your collaborative practices. Hovering over any item reveals the full item. We encourage you to explore how your results compare with other respondents across gender, tenure, age and organization level.
