Generating ideas, connections, and action

Our Network Development Services

  • Is  a  network  approach  right  for  your  organization  or  initiative?           .
  • Are  you  looking  to  create  a  learning  network?
  • Do  you  want  to  evaluate  the  health  and  impact  of  your  existing  network?          
The  Leadership  Learning  Community  (LLC)  is  your  resource  for  developing  a  network  strategy  that  is  right  for  your  organization.     We  work  with  a  wide  range  of  organizations  in  the  social  sector,  including  but  not  limited  to  those  running  leadership  programs.     Whether  you  are  looking  to  evaluate  and  improve  the  effectiveness  of  your  current  network  efforts,  or  develop  an  entirely  new   network,  we  work  with  you  to  devise  a  responsive  and  feasible  strategy.    We  leverage  network  building  techniques,  social  network   analysis,  and  other  innovative  methodologies  to  connect  people,  resources  and  ideas  to  increase  network  solidarity  and  influence.     Our  project  teams  bring  together  the  best  minds  in  network  thinking  and  practice  to  deliver  high-­impact  results.  

Why a Network Approach?

Networks  are  efficient  at  coordinating  resources  and  have  the  flexibility  to  adapt  to  complex  changing  environments.  Organizations   that  develop  network  capacity  have  reported  community  and  system  level  results  in  less  time,  and  utilizing  fewer  resources,  than   those  that  focus  on  individual  level  outcomes.  Some  documented  results  include  the  development  of  a  women’s  micro-­venture   network  in  the  Philippines  through  the  Presencing    Institute’s    Emerging  Leaders  Innovate  Across  Sectors  program;  and  a  30%   increase  in  the  fifth  grade  reading  scores  and  the  adoption  of  a  bilingual  district  wide  report  card  in  Denver,  CO  through  Annie  E.   Casey  Foundation’s  Making  Connections  Initiative.

Our Services

We  design  a  network  strategy  based  on  your  specific  needs  and  interests.    Our  services  include:  

  • Activate  a  powerful  learning  network
    • We  connect  those  inside  and/or  outside  your  organization  to  leverage  their  experiences  and  insights  by  creating   opportunities  to  establish  relationships,  share  resources,  and  communicate  their  knowledge  and  wisdom  within   and  beyond  the  network.    Learning  networks  foster  ongoing  support  and  collaboration  among  members.
  • Assess  the  impact  of  your  network
    • If  you  are  already  running  a  global,  national  or  local  network,  we  can  help  you  understand  how  your  members   are  connected,  how  they  are  collaborating,  and  the  impacts  they  have  as  a  network.    This  process  can  help identify  challenges  and  opportunities  for  taking  your  efforts  to  the  next  level.
