Connected Networks and Trusted Communities

Tim McDonald

A connected network knows no boundaries as it enables people internally and externally to connect around purpose and common needs and interests. It surpasses organizational hierarchies to connect people to each other and to ideas. The future of work is already here as we live in an open and connected world where it is easier to connect and have random collisions with people from around the world. We have co-working spaces, co-creation, co-living spaces, open source and the growing freelance economy.

The key to the 21st century is the ability of leaders to create space and bring together the right people at the right time to focus on their top opportunities. You will become increasingly aware of why connected networks and trusted communities are key to your future success as a leader.
