Network Assessment

The key to a healthy network lies in the quality of the connections between the people in the network. Yet many networks struggle to create real engagement and meaningful exchange between network members, beyond likes or follows. Tapping into the potential in a network requires shared understanding, learning, leadership and action. We support you to deepen your understanding of your network so that you can strategically leverage it’s collective power.

Further Services

Building an empowered and thriving network is a process. Our guided online program is designed to accompany you on that journey, with a deeper and more lasting impact.

Network Journey

Whether you are initiating a new network or community or deepening the work of an existing one, our Network Journey can support you to foster co-ownership and a shared direction. We guide you to define and strengthen the DNA of your community or professional network, including the purpose, values, central roles and processes. Over a period of 2-4 months, we work with a core group of network representatives in a series of interactive workshops, to develop both the central components of the network, as well as capacities for collective leadership and collaborative action. 
For a practical case, you can read more about our work with the International Labour Organisation here. To learn more about a Journey for your network or community, please

Learning and Knowledge Management

Accessing and (re)distributing information is crucial to keep individuals engaged and collaborations flourishing. We support you to build up or strengthen your internal processes to gather and share knowledge, with tips, good practices and guidance for you to unlock the power of shared and actionable knowledge.
