Network Leadership Workshops: Skills and Approaches
May 11, 2021 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Network Leadership, another network capacity, necessitates both clear roles and responsibilities (Design) and appropriate skills and approaches (Skills and Approaches) to lead effectively in a network environment. Leadership is the function of guiding, directing, and facilitating the network and its members. Effective network leadership requires understanding the leadership roles and functions of different stakeholders within the network, from staff to the governing body to members, and clarity in both principle and practice about how those stakeholders will take on those roles both formally and informally. Similarly, network leadership requires non-traditional approaches in an operating environment wherein traditional hierarchical and directive approaches aren’t appropriate and often against network effectiveness. Network leaders in all roles must ensure a network mindset, manage conflict, and foster accountability, among other skills. These workshops will articulate appropriate approaches for network leadership both structurally and in practice and deepen your skills as a network leader.
