“Leaders achieve success—for themselves and their organisations—not only because of their own abilities, knowledge, and skills but also through their relationships with others. The networks leaders build affect how they share and receive new ideas.”

Phil Willburn and Kristin L. Cullen, PhD, from the The Centre for Creative Leadership (CCL), describe the three qualities of a good network in their recent whitepaper, A Leader’s Network: How to Help Your Talent Invest in the Right Relationships at the Right Time. 

The paper explores how the networks leaders build affect how they share and receive new ideas.Networks allow leaders to locate resources and information outside their routine interactions.
