Connected Leadership Builds and Enables Effective Teams
Leadership is not a solo occupation. Your people have knowledge and experience you don't have, and you need to tap into their expertise if you want your organization to survive and flourish. To succeed in the competitive, rapidly changing business ecosystem that's happening around us, you must take a more collaborative approach to leadership. Engage your people and empower them by sharing leadership, goal-setting, and authority-in other words, effectively connect with your team.
Connected Leadership will show you:
● Why connected leadership is the future of organizations
● How to set goals that engage everyone on the team
● How to know as a leader when to step up or step back
Learn to share the decision-making process and get team buy-in through collaboration. When you share leadership with your team, you engage the power of collaboration and enable your team to lead themselves.

About the Author
Table of Contents
As a leader, you must make daily choices about how to use your authority. If you understand that leadership is a privilege and others know more than you in their areas of expertise, you can shift your focus from what you can achieve to how you can enable others on your team to achieve organizational goals.
Chapter 1: Seeing Differently
Dyslexia made me think differently about tasks and processes, and learn to experiment with alternatives and look for assistance to get things done. Being different didn't stop me from achieving leadership roles, and I have learned that thinking differently is a positive trait in business.
Chapter 2: The Model
The wide-ranging skills and knowledge needed to advance in our technologically driven society make collaboration across disciplines mandatory. It promotes innovation for solving complex, multidimensional problems. My model for collaboration demonstrates how this works.
Chapter 3: The Goal
The goal is the most important part of the collaboration model. When the goal is clear, partners, suppliers, contractors, and providers know who you are and whether you are a competitor. In circumstances where the future is unclear, you can develop the goal based on what you know.
Chapter 4: Convene the Team
Collaboration requires more than skills and knowledge. Building a collaborative environment is about choosing people who have skills in working with others. You must look at how they can grow rather than limiting your view to their past experiences and skills.
Chapter 5: Carry Out the Plan
Finding a path to the goal requires determining the actions needed and the milestones required to measure progress. You must understand how the collaboration will work and adapt the plan as the work develops.
Chapter 6: Attention
In the digital world, you must adapt the way you work with technology rather than maintaining the old work patterns. You must apply attention during a collaboration to monitoring, observing, adapting, searching for people's talents, and acknowledging and celebrating milestones.
Chapter 7: The Parts in Action
A collaborative effort is going well if the problems and challenges are mostly handled at the level where they arise. Conflicts can result in better products or stronger partnerships, if people are willing to stay focused on the goal.
Chapter 8: Be an Infinite Learner
Being an infinite learner is a mindset that keeps you looking for new information and solutions-it keeps you flexible and curious. This attitude is critical to being a connected leader.
Chapter 9: Getting Lost
Self-awareness of emotions and mindset can help you avoid allowing others to derail you. Observe the team's progress so you can act before they get off track.
Chapter 10: Next Steps
You need a high level of trust among all participants to create a true collaboration. Trust and honesty are values, not directives. Competition among team members destroys trust when individuals work to "win" at the expense of others.
