Long before Covid-19, in the late 1800s, the term “social distance” was coined by sociologists to refer to the emotional or cognitive distance within groups of people. If people feel connected to the group, it thrives. If they do not feel included, are allowed to hide outside the group, or are disengaged, the group falls apart. The key to success in dispersed teams (especially those going through crisis or change) is to minimize social distance and increase feelings of belonging, acceptance, and connection in the group. This requires a more personal and connected form of leadership that focuses on close communication and inclusion.

Over the past 8 months of global lockdowns and working from home, Singapore-based Global Communication Specialist Heather Hansen has been discussing these topics with teams based everywhere from Europe to New Zealand to discover best practices and write the new rules of online communication.

In this fascinating, interactive presentation, she will share:

  • Why real social distance is so dangerous for dispersed teams
  • The ways leadership DNA is changing to focus on vulnerability and personal connection
  • How the Harvard-developed SPLIT framework can help you to identify and decrease social distance
  • Specific ways global companies are adjusting their communication culture and processes to increase connection within teams
