The intersection of networks and leadership represents a burgeoning area of scientific inquiry. Leadership theory and research has traditionally been leader-centered, that is, its main emphasis has been on the individual characteristics and behaviors of formal leaders. More recently scholars have highlighted the critical role instrumental and affective networks play in individuals achieving positions of formal leadership and once there, their effectiveness. For instance, leaders ability to understand, modify and leverage workplace networks are critical for their own, their team’s and their organization’s success. Moreover, leadership is increasingly understood as a relational, patterned, dynamic, formal and informal influence process. Social network methods have been identified as useful for quantifying these relational patterns of leadership, for predicting their emergence, and for linking these leadership structures to individual, team, and organizational outcomes.
