Belonging, Diversity, & Inclusion

Help sponsors diversify their networks

The LND helps organizations improve their belonging, diversity, and inclusion measurements and initiatives. It provides “sponsors” with direct evidence of the diversity of the talent they are sponsoring or mentoring.

The LND makes the critical connections required for more equitable workplaces visible and actionable.

Organizations can use this information to rectify under sponsorship or over mentorship of their diverse talent. Additionally, the LND provides diverse talent with actionable feedback for closing gaps in their network, specifically mentorship and sponsorship gaps identified that provide pathways to promotions and upward mobility.

Women are often over mentored and under sponsored in organizations. Racially diverse candidates often miss out on key career experiences because of the lack of sponsorship, specifically key connections, in leadership networks. Because of this, women and racially diverse people are often underrepresented in organizational leadership positions, which impact the overall parity and justice in an organization. Equal access to sponsorship and leadership networks is a necessity if we are to ensure belonging and inclusion for all in today’s organization.

Wellbeing

Ensure your talent has the social support to stay resilient

Networks are conduits of vital resources that promote worker wellbeing. The LND provides HR and organizational leaders with a snapshot of the social wellbeing of their talent.

The LND ensures employees are investing in the right connections to help support them through tough times.

Although the LND is professionally oriented, we ask questions about social support and friendship connections because they have a huge impact on personal wellbeing, especially during tough times or periods of instability.

HR leaders can utilize levels of these network indicators to inform the development and implementation of wellbeing support initiatives. Individuals can use the feedback from the LND to better understand the support resources available to them through their networks, and how they need to build relationships to improve their wellbeing.

We can help your employees recognize their social support

Change & Innovation

Activate your change and innovation agents

Networks help accelerate change and innovation initiatives, increase their overall adoption, and ensure intended outcomes are achieved. The personal networks of change and innovation agents are often the key to an initiative’s success.

With the LND, change & innovation agents get the tools they need to boost their personal networks to ensure project adoption.

The LND helps innovation and change agents identify network gaps needed to improve project success. It provides quantifiable metrics to measure the effectiveness of the personal networks of change and innovation agents both prior to and during these initiatives. These measurements enable change and innovation leaders to quickly remedy gaps or provide new pathways to ensure project adoption.

Overall Leadership Development

Leaders with effective (e.g., open) networks tend to have higher performing groups and teams. Moreover, leaders are most effective not only when they have built a network that positions them well, but also when they have an accurate understanding of the network within their organization. This astute understanding of their network allows them to develop the connections they need and also help those they lead develop the networks they need to be effective.

Networks are a critical aspect of leadership development that is under-emphasized in most organizations. 1

The LND can be used to integrate a network lens to your organization's leadership development programs and initiatives. It provides leaders with actionable metrics to improve their leadership connections and strategies to increase overall effectiveness. The LND also provides Talent Managers, Learning & Development leaders, and program sponsors with insights on the overall network health of your organization's leadership cohorts.

With the LND, your leaders can build better and more strategic networks elevating their individual and collective performance.
