LEARN NETWORK LEADERSHIP

We are living in an increasingly inter-connected world, working in widely-distributed organizations and collaborating often physically remote. Meanwhile, the way we structure and organize our work is out of sync with this new normal. As the individualistic, directive, top-down model of leadership cracks under pressure, its ruins leave space for the change of organizational mindset.

Future calls for the leadership to be perceived as the collective, collaborative process, rather than one-man-band. However, not many can see that. Two recent independent studies confirm that less than 10% of the leaders worldwide see their organization as a network. The ones that do will ripe the fruits of tomorrow.

This is your chance to get ahead, gain the network leadership skills and tools.
