Years of research and practice point to an important connection between networks and leadership effectiveness, yet most efforts to improve networks fail to take a comprehensive approach. This webcast introduces a comprehensive framework for incorporating networks into leadership development, including:

  • Developing individuals' personal networks for greater personal growth and success
  • Shaping networks by individuals (often formal leaders) to improve collective effectiveness, innovation, and sustainability.
  • Co-creating networks by members of a team, organization, or community to support collective action.

Three key learnings:

  • What are the characteristics of an effective personal network?
  • How can managers improve their network perspective? 
  • How can teams, organizations, and communities build networks to support collective action?
