Building and sustaining effective networks is proving to be one of the most promising strategies of the 21st century. When individuals are able to work across organizational, geographic and sectoral boundaries, they are able to accomplish much more than they could working alone.
June Holley, a pioneer and 25-year veteran in the applications of network strategies, is coming to the Twin Cities and will share stories, tools and tips on building, nurturing and sustaining effective networks to facilitate the achievement of community and organizational goals. This session is for leaders or those individuals who find themselves aware of networks and want to applying new knowledge to get things done through networks.
In her new book, Network Weaver Handbook: A Guide to Transformational Networks, she outlines a number of leadership skills and competencies:
- identifying and assessing existing informal or formal networks;
- explaining the benefits of a network approach;
- increasing trust in networks;
- supporting innovation in networks;
- convening people together with similar interests to develop collaborative projects;
- developing network strategies.
