Connected leadership


Published on


As a result of improved trust in the workplace, leadership will be seen for what it is - an emergent property of a network in balance and not some special property available to only the select few.

  • Harold your Leadership thoughts are very provoking and cause me to ask: 1) While we have more 'means' of communication and knowledge than ever in history; surveys still say that 'communication' is the leading problem in companies today. 2) The 'new networks' really are a 'web'...a spider web of gossip, back stabbing, and misunderstood written language because there are limited (surface) relationships. 3) Pertinent, value-added, professional, synergy-team based networks are still the requirement.
    Leadership = Influence; Respect; Relationship; Trust
    Agree that 'staying busy' and therefore remaining 'isolated' is a poor excuse for shallow relationships. (Yes, let's get to where the action is -- where the rubber meets the road....Japanese Gemba)

  • Harold,

    Love this! The idea of network leadership is one I believe is the future of leadership and I like the way you present the 'wirearchy' of triangular flows...

    Do you do presentations around this?
