Max Muller on HR Issues That Managers Need to Know Now

Published: Jan 24, 2019

Beyond merely widening the circle of people you know, strong networks foster deeper learning and broaden your exposure across a range of issues. Effective investments in your networks can make you smarter, more knowledgeable, and better grounded, as well as a more agile learner and collaborator. In The Connect Effect, author Michael Dulworth identifies three distinct kinds of networks: personal, professional, and virtual, exploring their specific characteristics and offering strategies, tools, and resources for building up and making the best use of each one. Stories from Dulworth's over twenty years of experience running networks, as well as interviews with top executives, researchers, and thought leaders, provide insights and advice about how networks function in the real world. Michael Dulworth is president and CEO of Executive Networks. Before acquiring Executive Networks in late 2003, he was Vice President of Learning Services at The Concours Group. Prior to that, he was a Founder and CEO of Learning Technologies Group, Inc. He is the author, coauthor or a contributor to seven books on executive development, learning, and high-performance organizations, including The Connect Effect: Building Strong Personal; Professional and Virtual Networks; Corporate Learning: Proven and Practical Guidelines for Building a Sustainable Learning Strategy; and Strategic Executive Development: The Five Essential Investments.
