Network

The MyAnalytics Network page shows how many people you actively connect with in the last month and gives you suggestions on how to improve connections with your most important contacts, such as your manager or your direct reports.

It also shows your top collaborators in either a map or list view, enables you to view details about the important people in your network, and suggests people to add to your important list of people and grow your network.

Network tips

Add top collaborators to your important people list

Things change. Keep your Important people list up to date. Follow the steps in Important people to update your list.

Set up a weekly check-in with your manager

One-on-ones are a great way to keep your manager in the loop and resolve any issues quickly. Just 30 minutes of one-on-one time each week can help you stay in sync. Research shows that top-performing managers get regular one-on-one time with their team members. One-on-ones give employees an opportunity to voice concerns, share feedback, and stay motivated.

Make time for networking

Making time to foster relationships and grow your network has proven to contribute to professional advancement. A team partner study showed a correlation between successful salespeople and large networks. The top salespeople boasted internal networks that were 33% larger than those who performed below average. In this case, an investment in meaningful coworker relationships translated to higher performance.

Spend more time with important collaborators

Spending more time with the people in your network who align with your top-priority tasks at work can improve team collaboration and increase project success. Consider scheduling just one more weekly, reoccurring meeting with these people.
