In a network, power is something that is adaptable, flexible and is derived more from being connected rather than being charge. It’s based on competence rather than authority. In a network, you don’t have permanent leadership positions necessarily, or at least fewer of them. In a network, leadership is a function of circumstance, and what you need to do in the moment. That’s why networks are more adaptive. Leadership in a hierarchy is a function of your role, rather than a function of your capabilities and competencies.
