The pandemic has stolen the weak ties from our networks. Here’s how to get them back.

Our teams have lost so many connections during quarantine.
All those chance meetings and serendipitous moments – gone.
Those weak connections help open up our networks – and give us opportunities for new ideas and perspectives. 
Here’s how to get those connections back.

Be intentional.
Look out for professional development, or informal groups to join – maybe create one yourself.
Invite leaders from different organizations to team meetings for unique perspectives.

Use the tech
Informal Slack or Teams channels are great for open forums. 
Donut offers informal watercooler talks and virtual coffee breaks.

Track your network
Knowing what types of connections are missing from your network is important to getting it back to full health
