The Center for Creative Leadership in collaboration with the University of Cincinnati hosted the 2014 Thought Forum on Network Leadership and Leadership Networks, a two-day event with 30 leading scholars working at the intersection of collective leadership and network science. Scholars traveled from around the globe to Greensboro, North Carolina, bringing diverse perspectives and knowledge from a variety of contexts and settings including corporate, government, military, intelligence, large and small community-based organizations, and social movements. Themes and future directions that emerged during the two-day forum at CCL are shared here.
