Published: Jan 24, 2019

Jon Katzenbach and Zia Khan talk about the advantages and disadvantages of informal organizations and how to make them work for your team. Jon Katzenback and Zia Khan don’t want you to have fun at work. More specifically, they don’t want you to try to have fun; often that leads to trying too hard, strained attempts at socializing, and not a lot of work getting done. The work day flies by even faster when ideas are flying in meetings, instead of icebreakers. Katzenbach and Khan say, leave the socializing and fun to the informal networks in an organization, and they will come to it naturally.AMA_Edgewise_1034.mp3
