The Ambitious Leader

“At some point, being good at what you do is going to require more than just being good at what you do. When you reach the point where everyone at your career level is playing for the same table stakes, successful employees will need to bring more to bear — namely an understanding of social capital.”
– Dr. John Burrows

Social capital, a concept pioneered at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business by professor Ron Burt, Hobart W. Williams professor of sociology and strategy, has fast become a core concept in business as it helps leaders optimize different parts of their organization.
