5 critical actions to develop leadership in an Enterprise Social Network
1. Participate. A social network is, before anything else, an architecture for participation. The leaders of an enterprise social network are those who actively participate, individuals who know how to create participation spaces and they generate more participation.
2. Share. In a social network, what is not shared does not exist. And, for the most part, individuals who do not share do not exist either. Leaders in an enterprise social network learn, enjoy, grow and achieve shared influence in a spontaneous manner while opening their talent.
3. Connect. The power of connection in a social network is one of its main strengths. The leaders in an Enterprise Social Network are nodes in the network because they are accesible, open, flexible, and they enjoy being connected with all the members. For them, being connected with other people is valuable for themselves, beyond operational collaboration and timeliness at any given moment. And being connected to leaders is valuable for others because they provide value in different ways (by the content, by their connection capacity with the rest of the network, etc.)
