Registeration Now closed

Details

Social networks create a competitive advantage in the workplace, in organizations, and in markets. They stimulate growth and innovation, facilitate secure exchange with trusted partners, and keep us on our toes.

But what happens to business leadership when those connections are severed?

Ronald Burt, Hobart W. Williams Professor of Sociology and Strategy at Chicago Booth, will explore the high cost of withdrawing and examine the negative consequences for those who disengage.
