Recap from the RCRC Roundtable


We hope that those who attended the RCRC Roundtable enjoyed it as much as we did! Whether or not you attended, you can access some artifacts from Shift and Share Presentations and photos from the event. If you took photos please share them with us as well. You can also join the conversation that we’ve started on the RCRC blog to discuss the Roundtable or the events following it.

If you attended the Roundtable, we’ll be following up with even more materials (an updated booklet and slides from the keynote by Tim Vogus).  And please take a moment to fill out our 10 question survey about the event. It will help us to improve the Roundtable for next year. Each person who takes the survey by November 18th will be entered into a drawing to receive a signed copy of Transforming Relationships for High Performance by Jody Hoffer Gittell. Take the survey here.

Early Survey Results

“Great hosts, great friends, good learning.”

“The KP story was inspiring and informative!”

“The high calibre of participants will keep me coming back.”

“Loved how well it facilitated ability to meet lots of different people and share ideas with such fluidity.”

“I’m anxious to look at my doctoral data with new eyes in light of what I learned.”

“Our hopes for building a researcher/practitioner dialogue are being fulfilled.  The Roundtable is serving as a vehicle to accelerate learning and dissemination of new ideas and emerging best practices.  It’s also building and sustaining strong relationships!”

“Movement, mobilization and bottom up change was one important theme in many conversations, and a stronger common language and conceptual clarification would be facilitative.  Found it a bit puzzling that the level of common understanding and insight on this theme wasn’t bigger.”

More Upcoming Events

December 6 at 4:00 ET: RC Cafe: When relational interventions help increase RC measures and produce better outcomes for a focus work process, what is happening? Individuals feel that other roles share their goals, share knowledge about their tasks, have mutual respect, and engage in better communication. What is behind the shift created by the intervention? Do people just decide to behave differently? If so, why? What is the opportunity that motivates them? What shifts at the individual or role level? Fundamentally, what kinds of things are happening? Are they the same for structural or work process interventions as well? Jim Best (PhD student at Saybrook University) will pick up on a conversation from the Roundtable and wrestle with it in this RC Café.
