This project examines networks at the individual, group, organizational, and societal level to generate insights that will help leaders and collectives as a whole develop network perspective and build more effective networks. This project uses an applied research approach to test how these insights can be leveraged to improve leadership development, with an emphasis on enhancing individual well-being, intergroup collaboration, change implementation, and innovation.
- Improved understanding of more relational forms of leadership by employing network theories and methods
- New insights, tools, assessments, and approaches for helping individuals and collectives build and maintain networks that expand the leadership capacity of organizations
- Reports and publications to disseminate these findings
