Connections vs. networks

My second post in The Big Think looks at whether networks are more important than connections when it comes to business. It draws on the ideas of Michael Stallard and his book Fired Up or Burned Out. As I note in the blog,

Stallard’s theme is connection, and he doesn’t mean connection of the social networking kind. He thinks businesses, from the CEO on down, need to develop a culture that encourage employees – all employees – to feel like they’re valuable. He argues that it comes down to connecting with employees, and helping them connect with customers and partners. Stallard says that takes a vision, an ability to make other people feel valued, and to give employees a voice.
