– Great Leadership Is a Network, Not a Hierarchy

In her Ted Talk ‘Great Leadership Is a Network, Not a Hierarchy’ Gitte Frederiksen dives into distributed leadership.

Distributed leadership is a movement that goes beyond the traditional model of having one leader who sits on top of the hierarchy.

In a hierarchy where taking the lead, having ownership, and making decisions are left to only one or a few people, there is more room for human error.

In a network, the power of the few is replaced by the influence of the many. This is a much more productive use of resources and improves motivation and engagement.

“We need to create leaders, not followers.”
