Boosting performance within a collaborative culture at LinkedIn
LinkedIn partners with Insights to boost team effectiveness in a culture of collaboration
LinkedIn is an organisation that’s growing at pace globally. This means that many LinkedIn people are working in multiple teams simultaneously, with all of the demands, adaptability, and understanding of cultural difference that that entails.
Relationships need to be built quickly and reach effectiveness rapidly, despite that fact that team members may work in different time zones, on varying priorities, and will possibly never meet in person.
For LinkedIn the question was: how do we instil a culture of collaboration that’s also as highly effective as we need it to be?
One of the best ways to embed the Insights language of colour in an organisation is to build a core of accredited Insights Discovery Practitioners internally. We have begun to build a network of practitioners across LinkedIn, who are experts both in what’s going on on the ground, and how to use Insights Discovery solutions to address those issues quickly.
For LinkedIn, there were three ways to maximise their culture of collaboration:
The language of Insights Discovery just keeps spreading. As just one example, Senior Sales Performance Consultant in Sales Readiness, Tiffany Poeppelman, has – in just one year - helped over 250 people to begin their journey with Insights Discovery.
Teams across LinkedIn now find it much simpler to reach maximum performance quickly, as the Insights Discovery language of colour gives them common ground where it may not exist elsewhere. Where people are matrixed into multiple teams, Insights Discovery provides a common thread throughout the organisation which helps to address conflict, enhance team performance, and allows people to invest in their own development while meeting their goals.
Teams must work effectively together to be successful; investing in their development of self, and their interactions with others, is paramount.
