Turn Up the Courage in Networks

Are you already facing the leadership challenges of an existing network or are you looking to set up a new network?

“Very soon, the ability to lead a network will become as important as the ability to lead an organisation.” Common Purpose.

Did you know that networking has been underlined as The Key skill for the 21st Century. (Thomas Power, founder of Ecademy)

Why is this so? Take a step into the emerging new landscape of networks – become a leader in your field!

Science is revealing a connected and networked world, both at a micro (e.g. human body) and also at a macro level (e.g. financial and social systems). There is a need to acknowledge and integrate this reality into the way we operate. Huge numbers of new networks are now springing up in all kinds of virtual spaces (UN Habitat Jam, Flickr, Taking It Global, Ecademy) enabled by new technologies. People are connecting across networks like never before. Part of the reason for this is that there is a craving for simplicity as a result of information overload. Becoming part of a network enables people to access resoures such as summaries, meaning brokers, connections into other domain and other features that help to simplify the process of making sense of their world. Networks play a key role in supporting the emergence of meaning and wisdom through connectivity, context awareness and economies of scale.
