We’re also previewing the content in this series of Moments, which feature highlights from each session. In this Cloud Wars Expo Moment, excerpted from the CXO2 Jam Session on the “Great Reshuffle,” analysts Kenny Mullican and Wayne Sadin are joined by LinkedIn Director of Product Marketing Sudha Ranganathan for a discussion on establishing trust among managers and employees, particularly in the era of work-from-anywhere (WFA), and how technology can be used to help empower employees.
00:15 — Ranganathan emphasizes how “courageous, candid conversations” with the sole aim to develop a person are critical to providing quality feedback.
01:10 — Mullican examines the “reshuffle” and what it means to care about employees; caring might look like finding a good fit within a company or allowing talent to pursue greater opportunities.
02:07 — Executives need to build richer communication networks. Technology will only improve hybrid and remote work communication. Sadin reflects on the state of cameras and Zoom meetings at the start of the pandemic compared to today.
03:15 — Managers must be able to create safe spaces for honest conversation, even for employees moving to positions outside of the company. Wayne emphasizes employees are owed openness and trust.
