Did you know that there is a hidden structure supporting your organization? We’re not talking about brick and mortar or your technology systems. But it’s a foundation that is just as important — the networks of informal relationships that connect people within your organization.
In this swiftly changing, complex, and interconnected world, the ability to understand and leverage informal organizational networks is vital for senior leaders. In an environment where tough decisions have to be made quickly and often, you cannot rely on hierarchy or traditional approaches to get information or make things happen.
One of the most important skills to develop for yourself — and your organization — is network perspective: the ability to look beyond the organizational chart to see, understand, and engage the informal, invisible structure supporting the organization. Network-savvy leaders intentionally develop this perspective and create a connected, more interdependent culture. Some take it even further, expanding their organization’s network throughout the world.Download White Paper
