Every single day, we are provided with wonderful situations of connections at our workplace. It is how we use these situations that our connectors can be meaningful or not. Therefore, what is a workplace connector? This is an event or environment in which all the team members find a sense of belonging and purpose to work towards achieving the common goal which has brought them at that workplace.This term is used mostly in conflicts situations as an avenue in which people can come together to overcome their differences in order to coexist harmoniously.
The workplace is no difference from the community setup as it composed of people from different backgrounds, race, religions, cultures, academic backgrounds, experiences, etc. These differences are a prerequisite of disharmony in the workplace and it thus needs a conscious approach to overcome these through developing workplace connectors.
The issue is, how do we look at our workplaces? Are they places that connect us or not
Inclusive Meaningful Meetings.
Many employees feel left behind and isolated because they never are part of the meetings that take place in the workplace. As a result, they will start grumbling how they are not important and this will eventually show in their output. A disgruntled staff is one who becomes disengaged and they affect the productivity of not only themselves but also those of the whole team.
As a Manager, you need to be concerned in ensuring that you have numerous opportunities for staff to connect with one another than disconnecting. This has to be an intentional practice if you will have a workplace which is conducive for the staff to sustain high performance.
