Increasing Collaboration without Creating Collaborative Overload: With Special Guest Thomas Stone

Episode Summary

This week on IDIODC, Brent and Chris bring on special guest Thomas Stone to chat i4cp and workplace collaboration. The Institute for Corporate Productivity, or i4cp, focuses on the cultural, leadership, workplace, and talent practices that can increase collaboration in organizations. A recent study by i4cp revealed many best and next practices that drive increased collaboration at high-performing organizations, but also shed light on the dark side of collaboration—the issue of collaborative overload. Fortunately, there are practices you can follow to both avoid and address collaborative overload when it occurs. Tom Stone is a Senior Research Analyst with i4cp, the Institute for Corporate Productivity, where he is a writer, researcher, and speaker. He has 20 years of experience in the L&D and broader Human Capital industry. Prior to joining i4cp Tom was Director, Technology Based Learning at Dale Carnegie Training, where he led the product development for their live online and other digital offerings.

He is also co-author of the book Interact and Engage! 50+ Activities for Virtual Training, Meetings, and Webinars (ATD Press, 2015). In addition to his research and writing in the Human Capital industry, Tom is also an avid baseball fan and wrote the book “Now Taking the Field: Baseball’s All-Time Dream Teams for All 30 Franchises,” published by ACTA Sports in the fall of 2018.
