  3. 3. How leaders create and use networks Operational Personal Strategic Purpose Getting work done efficiently; maintaining the capacities and functions required of the group. Enhancing personal and professional development; providing referrals to useful information and contacts. Figuring out future priorities and challenges; getting stakeholder support for them. Location and temporal orientation Contacts are mostly internal and orientated towards current demands. Contacts are mostly external and orientated toward current interests and future potential interests. Contacts are internal and external and orientated towards the future. Players and recruitment Key contacts are relatively nondiscretionary; they are prescribed mostly by the task and organizational structure, so it is very clear. Key contacts are mostly discretionary; it is not always clear who is relevant. Key contacts follow from the strategic context and the organizational environment, but specific membership is discretionary; it is not always clear who is relevant. Network attributes and key behaviors Depth: building strong working relationships. Breadth: reaching out to contracts who can make referrals. Leverage: creating inside- outside links.
