Two heads are better than oneā€”and twenty-two are even better. Networks are one of the most powerful tools available to those working to create social change, but making networks survive and thrive requires special skills. In Connecting to Change the World: Harnessing the Power of Networks for Social Impact, authors Peter Plastrik, Madeleine Taylor, and John Cleveland share tips and strategies they've learned over decades of building successful networks in a range of fields. We're pretty fond of networks ourselves, so we're particularly pleased to feature Connecting to Change the World as our $3.99 sale e-book for the month of October. Enjoy the excerpt below, enter to win a copy of the book, and grab the e-book while it's on sale!
