The Great Reconnection

What is The Great Reconnection?

Much has been said over the last year about the Great Resignation, the pivot to remote working, and the ever-shifting return to work policy misfires. However, too little has been done to address the fundamental need of workers who are coming back to the office: reconnection. Leaders have an opportunity to reconnect workers to their colleagues, their customers, and the very purpose of the organization itself, but many don’t know how to do this.

In this new season of Workplace Stories, The Great Reconnection, we will explore how leaders should approach this work. We will talk to authors and business leaders who are rethinking what leadership means today, in light of the last two years, and explore how they are planning to scale this new approach across organizations. We will specifically dive into the role of managers, and how they can bring more humanity, empathy, and care to their role, while still enabling their teams to be effective and productive. We will explore the role of colleagues and peers in enabling greater connection. Finally, we will seek to understand the role of data, technology, and new digital-first ways of working in making The Great Reconnection successful.
