Learn and Lead: 4 Keys to Keeping Network Leaders Moving
How can a network leader keep their growing network’s leaders and work teams on task and fulfilling their commitments without micromanaging?
Why is this issue such a challenge for networks?
- As the reach and size of a network expands, the task moves beyond the core team into distributed working teams. Commitment, focus and progress can dissipate as distance, complexity and communication becomes more challenging.
- Network leaders bring different levels of availability, commitment, passion and skill to their roles.
- Many networks are composed of volunteers with day jobs or share resource people with other ministries.
- Remote work teams face additional challenges caused by isolation, distance, unclear or changing objectives and reduced access to information.
This collection of best practices addresses the leadership challenge of how to keep a growing network moving and its leaders engaged and fulfilling their commitments. Drawn from Synergy Common’s Peer Learning Cohorts, this document offers four key strategies and over 30 field-tested ideas network leaders can use in their own networks.
A big thank you to the members of Peer Learning Cohort #1 for allowing their conversation and ideas to be shared with other network leaders!
