Research: communication with similar people is stronger than believed

Submitted by on Sunday, 27 October 2013No Comment

communication with similar peopleNew research has shown that communication with similar people is stronger than previously believed.

This restricts the flow of information and ideas in social networks – including in companies. These are the findings that an Aalto University research group will publish this week in an article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences publication series.

What this means for businesses

If communication among different groups is key for your business, then the upshot of this is that, without training or other interventions, there is a regression to the mean that could impact the following:

· innovation

· cross-functional collaboration

· cross-cultural collaboration

· teamwork

· execution of your strategy

What you can do to overcome this mentality

If this kind of situation is affecting your company, then you may be interested in two programmes we offer that overcome this mentality.

If you believe (like us!) that strong teams are not about similarities but differences, then have a look at our Five Star Teams programme.
